Friends of the Horizon Board
In 2010, the Horizon Board expanded their goal to reach out to more individuals by launching Dream Leaders, which is now known as Friends of the Horizon Board.
Developed to encourage acquaintances of the Horizon Board to be more active in supporting Dreams Come True, “Friends” help support the Horizon Board’s mission to make a difference in the lives of local children battling life-threatening illnesses.
The Horizon Board accepts applications for the Friends of the Horizon Board throughout the year. Membership is $20 annually and includes exclusive discounts at Horizon Board annual functions, such as:
- Classic Cornhole Tournament
- Talk Derby to Me (Kentucky Derby Themed Event)
- Pub Crawl
- Happy Hour Socials (Including the Annual Holiday Social)
- New Year’s Eve Celebration
Today, this group is actively involved and consists of many individuals who will become future members of the Horizon Board.
