We wanted it to be fun, engaging, and hopefully well attended. By the grace of all the hard work of all the volunteers, Heifer staff, gracious donors, dedicated congregational and community organization supporters, and the marvelous space that St. Mark’s United Methodist Church provided the perfect setting for the event it all came off in a spectacular fashion.

At our Sacramento Heifer Volunteers' 70th Celebration, I got a larger sense of the breadth and depth of Heifer's presence over the years. A key moment was when the honorees from the various congregations all stood. I saw so many people with long and strong histories of connection with Heifer. Inspiring! – Cheryl McKinney

I scanned the room and sensed the wealth of wisdom and faithfulness among Heifer's friends, old and new. Passing on the Gift was represented thousands of times as these advocates for ending hunger and poverty shared the Heifer story over many, many years. Another indication of the power that is in all of us sharing Heifer's good news.
