As a tiny introduction to get acquainted, we are Chanda Brown and Samantha Nason of Zest it Up, a locally run event design and catering company. We had the honor of working with all the amazing volunteers at FCNI’s Benefit for Kids this past July. We were left so impressed by the caliber of work being done by Family Care Network and by all the wonderful vendors and attendees who so wholeheartedly came out to support their mission, that we can say we were officially “bit by the bug!” Community is contagious and the strength that comes from it is boundless. This strength is the kind that lifts up those who struggle and knits them more intricately into the fabric of our community. Those without a voice, are given a voice. We found ourselves wanting to dive deeper and call more people out to connect and support FCNI.
