Thank you Quad Cities for Our Biggest Turnout Yet for our 2013 Individual Donor Fundraising Breakfast!! At the breakfast we were able to hear testimonials from Rev. Clark Olson-Smith, Deacon David Elliott, and Clyde Mayfield. All of whom described the importance that QCI has to our community. Rev. Olson-Smith talked about his work with ROC at All Saints Lutheran Church. Deacon Elliott shared his story and gave us a better understanding to his advocacy in the Health Equity Task Force. Similarly Clyde Mayfield talked about the Jobs Equity Task Force. Ana Garcia Ashley, the Executive President of Gamaliel, was also present and she gave a firing speech about Rekindling the Fire. We raised $10,000
