Exude has been incredibly supportive of our mission over the years, and they generously offered to sponsor our dessert table for the 2020 Chair Affair. Despite our shift to a virtual event, we partnered with Exude to make sure anyone attending the event virtually has a delicious recipe they can follow for a special treat.
