Salt & Light Banquet

This annual event was created by ARM in 2007 to raise funds and express our gratitude to all those in the community who have supported our agency.

The group recently signed a recording deal with BMG and released their first new album in two decades to celebrate their 30th Anniversary.

For the 43rd Annual Salt & Light Banquet, we were blessed to be joined by Shenandoah, who graciously agreed to make our banquet part of their 30th Anniversary Tour.
