Thank you for making our 50th anniversary Patrons’ Show Fundraiser the best yet!

This Sunday, patrons got together, had a good time, and took home hundreds of original artworks. See below for some photos from the amazing evening, and mark your calendars for next year’s event: Sunday, February 17, 2019.
