Your $25 “Home Sweet Home” donation will go directly towards helping a family in need stay in their home.

Triangle Family Services would like to say “thank you” with an invitation to the 11th annual Gingerbread House Sneak Preview event at The Umstead Hotel in Cary Thursday, December 5th. Be the first to get a peek at the 11th anniversary Gingerbread Houses, designed by the Triangle’s finest chefs and bakers, enjoy festive holiday music and special performances, and vote for your favorite house.
