Thank you to all of the volunteers who assisted with setting up, cooking, serving, donating deserts, clearing tables and the clean up. This event would not be possible without all of your support and help. Thanks to everyone who supported our event and purchased a ticket. We had a lot of positive feedback and look forward to next year as this is a major fund raiser for our Community Association.

Looking Ahead!!
