Stay Safe

As a result of the current situation with the corona virus and not knowing what is ahead of us in the upcoming days and months, the LAH event, as we know it, is being modified for this year. 


Our plan is not to rely on business donations this year as business owners now have their own challenges but we will offer the opportunity for individuals to make a financial donation to support our LAH efforts. The Lower Dauphin Falcon Foundation will accept tax deductible donations for us.   

There are 2 ways to make a contribution -
