This is the first of its kind event at Colony Market and Deli. “The LIGHTHOUSE committee members are looking forward to this fundraiser which promises to bring fun and excitement to the whole family,” said Greyhound Foundation Executive Director, Donn Clickard. 


The event brings together local businesses to raise money and awareness for LIGHTHOUSE with an evening of fun and community including Axe Throwing, Putt-Putt Golf, local food drink, and music. LIGHTHOUSE coffee will be available for sale as well.

The mission of the LIGHTHOUSE programs is to provide awareness, prevention, intervention, and education in the areas of drug and alcohol abuse for the youth in our community. 

“In addition to raising money, we are hopeful of increasing awareness about this very important organization,” said Colony Market and Deli co-owner Joanna Wemple. 

Programs are currently at Atascadero Middle School and Paloma Creek High School.
