Local Businesses

Thank you to the amazing businesses and individuals who donate silent auction items and draw prizes. We had so many items we didn't know what to do with them! But alas, every single item went to a good home at the end of the night.

And of course, thank you to everyone who attended this amazing event! We had a wonderful time and hope you did too!

Words cannot express the feeling each and everyone of us as Founders and Directors felt to have this event become the success that it did. The level of appreciation we have is beyond what we can put into words here.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, each and everyone of you.
