Their support, tremendous generosity and fabulous food and service helped us make it an extra special event. Twenty-five percent of all the sales are going to ACYR. All funds raised go directly to support much-needed programs and services that we provide to people who are living with or affected by HIV/AIDS.
Live music was in the air at several of the restaurants. A silent auction, supported by generous donors, was held at some locations to boost the funds raised and add greatly to the fun. And we will soon discover the winners of a two prize draws.
