We brought together community members, philanthropists, business associates, and friends to share our mission: to connect people who care with causes that matter. We are thankful to the fantastic restaurants and caterers who took the time and energy to contribute their scrumptious desserts, as well as the patrons, sponsors, and volunteers who made the evening a success.”
