We hope you will remember TAO when thinking about your charitable giving this year. For those of you who choose to give on December 2nd, our code on the ROC The Day website is TAO2493. Thank you.

More information can be found on the ROC The Day website here.


Delta Sonic Gift Cards

We are offering $5 Delta Sonic Car Wash Gift Cards again this year. They are a great idea as a stocking stuffer, or perhaps consider purchasing a few for yourself. Once again, we will be offering them at two $5 Gift Cards for $5 (i.e. half price!!). An order not only represents a saving to you, but also helps to support TAO programs! 

To pre-order your Gift Cards please go to the "Fundraisers" link on this website and fill out the order form. Please forward your payment by December 3rd. Your Gift Cards will be mailed to you on or about December 10th. Note that we will continue to take orders after December 10th until our supply has been depleted.
