WHEN: Saturday, Aug. 28, 10:30 a.m. welcome and buffet brunch

WHY: Every room in Rosenbaum Family House is full every night. On any given day, some 20 families will be waiting for a room and may need to wait up to eight days before a room becomes available. Opened in 1999, Rosenbaum Family House is proud to serve so many families each year, but the need exceeds its ability to help.
