Hypnotist Lee Dyson returned with his ‘The Magic of the Mind’ show and amazed all our guests. ‘Lost & Loaded’, a band comprised of local professionals, played throughout the evening entertaining everyone with a wide variety of music.


The support from the community, corporate sponsors, in-kind donations and auction item donors was tremendous and we could not do the event without it. We are grateful that they share in our vision for a safer and healthier community. Over 50 volunteers came out to assist wherever they were needed and we can’t express how important they are to the organization.
