What a great success!

Wow! we had such a wonderful time at the benefit dinner last week. It was so nice to see friends and family, and meet so many new friends! Shaun and I were so touched by the love, support, and generosity of all who attended. Thank you for being there to support us. There were even a few customers who popped in just for dinner and were met with a very large crowd - we're glad you joined us!

We would like to extend a special thank you to Leah Ventimiglia(and her family) for all of her hard work in putting this event together. I know that planning this dinner took up a lot of her time, and we are so appreciative. Big thanks are also due to Ron & Julie Horn of Buchanan Arms restaurant for hosting this dinner. The food was INCREDIBLE(as always!) and your staff was so wonderful - thank you!
