ROC The Day, December 2nd, is your opportunity to make a donation to charities in the local community that mean the most to you. 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.


Important Note

October 27th. If you sent a pre-order for car wash gift cards through the "Fundraisers" link prior to October 27th and have not received an acknowledgement, please resend your order. We recently discovered a software problem that was preventing receipt of orders. In addition, if you have sent a message via the form on the "Contact Us" link and have not received a reply, please resend your note. The software problem affected this portion of the website also. Our apologies for this glitch which has now been fixed!
