Our utmost gratitude to all who attended, and especially those who participated in the Silent Auction, that raised over $800 that goes directly toward supporting our programs and scholarships for the 2014-15 academic year. Thank you to our Board of Trustees who supported the program with private donations and by recruiting donations for the silent auction.
