    This is what community is all about - concerned, caring, empathetic, and an unselfish giving of time. This team spent many days and nights on this fundraiser understanding how difficult it is for many families to make Christmas today. A BIG THANKS to all of the businesses and individuals who donated and especially to ALL of YOU who bought tickets and contributed to this night full of fun, dancing and lots of laughs!
