There were blue gowns, blue Hawaiian shirts, blue jeans and Senator Astle even sported a blue tuxedo. We had a record-breaking attendance and raised more money than ever before. Our guests enjoyed listening to music by the Rob Levit Trio, while bidding on a wide array of silent and live auction items. Alex Cortright emceed the live auction, which also raised more money than previous years.”
