We are beyond words at the outpouring of support for the benefit. Together, we not only raised more than last year, but we beat it by almost a 1000% increase!
We’d like to thank all of the the artists, Freddy Jones Band, Tom Beverly, Rowboat, & Ovie Nirgudkar for their amazing performances!
We’d also like to thank all of our sponsors, including those that donated to the auction, as well as Max Taps who has supported our cause every year.
And finally, we want to thank all those that attended, participated in the auction, and the many volunteers that helped us make this possible! We could not have done it without you!
