Attendees & bidders, wow !!!! you definitely brightened the lives for our students – both present ones &future ones.
To our SPONSORS of all levels, we are indebted to you for kicking in to give the biggest boost up front to the fund development goal.
To all item and monetary donors , this may have been a record-breaking year for our auction; we are so thankful for the array of exciting items we could offer our bidders. Country Florist, your flowers were enjoyed by all, and taken home by attendees. Thank you.
Honorary members, you truly honor the whole organization by going an extra mile to help us change lives.
