This year's gala was  was one for the history books. A lively crowd, a delicious meal, moving volunteer speeches and lucrative auctions and raffles all led to a fiery finish! Emcee John Rhadigan and Auctioneer Dean McCurry fired up guests to ‘raise the paddles.’ And in just minutes, donations topped over $10,000 – enough by itself to pay off the balance on our building’s mortgage! Our thanks to the many volunteers and donors who made this night possible. SPONSOR LIST
