Our annual Appreciation Evening was held November 21, 2013.
At this celebration we spotlight volunteers and sponsors who contribute to the success of our festival weekend(s). This is also an exciting evening for our beneficiaries as we announce and present donations, too! This year, our 40th Anniversary festival raised $60,000 to distribute among various local non-profit organizations.
