The Twelfth Annual Angels Dinner Benefit

March 21st marked the Twelfth Annual Angels Dinner and some say it was our best yet! The evening boasted 300 guests who helped us raise over $200,000 to support our Summer Program and Summer Scholarships. A fun time was had by all as they worked their way through the mock club and interacted with Club members. Guest then enjoyed a cocktail hour and dinner catered by Elizabeth Kennedy.
