A live auction and dinner in Cotati on Saturday evening raised money for a new support center for area first responders.
First Responders Resiliency’s fundraising goal was $2 million, according to the nonprofit organization’s Founder and Executive Director Susan Farren.
“Go big or go home, girl,” she joked.
Money raised will go towards a center in Cotati that will offer services including trauma therapy, family services and addiction recovery support.
It will be the first center of its kind in the world, Farren said. She hopes to open it by 2023.
