Miles of Gratitude
More than 400 guests attended the sixth annual Milestones Dinner to celebrate LINC, Inc.’s 20th anniversary. Amanda Knox, author and exoneree, talked about her experience, calling for greater compassion and less vilification of justice-involved individuals. Wilmington Mayor Bill Saffo shared a proclamation congratulating LINC on the 20th anniversary of the organization.
The event exceeded previous years in raising funds to support programs and services assisting individuals returning from incarceration. Thank you to everyone who celebrated with us, and for your contributions to both LINC’s longevity and success.
