Shine Dayton was founded in 2016 by a group of young professionals who wanted to engage more of their generation in supporting CSSMV. The result was the Shine Dayton Celebration, a fun social event that raises funds for our Refugee Resettlement program.

This year’s event will be held on Friday, October 6 at Top of the Market in downtown Dayton, and will feature music, heavy hors d’oeuvre food stations, a silent auction, an open bar (beer and wine), desserts, and — of course — a chance for you to learn a bit about refugee resettlement and Catholic Social Services’ role in assisting refugees.
