Every other year, SWESA members and friends volunteer at a Casino. In 2019 our volunteers hours meant that over $70,000 went to supporting program delivery at SWESA! Volunteers are given training at the time of your shift. A meal and refreshments are provided. Each year we need to find willing volunteers to work a shift. Consider supporting SWESA in this way. Come with a friend and we’ll arrange for you to work together. All will be done with current Covid precautions in mind. CLICK HERE to find out more about volunteering.

Annual Appeal 2022

Every fall , SWESA’s major fundraiser is a campaign where SWESA members, Friends of SWESA, community and business organizations and the general public are invited to donate. In the last two years, we have raised almost $80,000. Critical to our success in the past has been:
a very generous Premiere donor
Friends of SWESA who donated early to match that initial amount.
