Vibrant Occasions Catering is committed to participating in the efforts of local nonprofits that directly benefit the communities in which we serve. We were honored to serve our community at First Security Bank in Benton to raise funds for the EMpact One Foundation’s Grab’n Go Benefit Breakfast. With over 25 years of experience in community involvement, youth development, leadership, entrepreneurship, and business administration, the EMpact One Foundation was co-founded by Lisa Weeks and Brooke Plack with the mission to “transform the way our youth impact the world. With the support of charitable giving from generous donors, active fundraising campaigns, and grant funding, EMpact One commits to giving today’s youth and their families the best possible chance to thrive and succeed. The EMpact One Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Vibrant Occasions loves breakfast, but breakfast for a cause we believe in…even better!

From athletic opportunities to leadership development to resources for families, we believe in the power each person has to shape the future of youth in Saline County, Arkansas. Through the Tuition Assistance Program, EMpact provides financial assistance to give more  youth access to the physical, mental and emotional benefits through athletic programs such as  gymnastics, swim, soccer and much more,“ said Desiree Paulhamus with The EMpact One Foundation.
