Laugh with Us

Join us on June 2nd for our 3rd annual Laughs Over Lunch (LOL) fundraiser.

Hosted at the magnificent JW Marriot Ice District, LOL promises to be an hour of inspiration, entertainment and engagement.

We’ve partnered with local arts collective SkirtsAfire to provide a variety show you are sure to enjoy. You’ll also have the chance to hear from a Terra participant on the impact Terra has had in their lives and enjoy a meal prepared by the renowned JW Marriott culinary team.

Join us on June 2 and help us raise $100,000 to support the complex needs of teen parents through Terra’s innovative programs and services.
