Another THANK YOU to our volunteers

Dr. Debbie Villalon, Daisy Guerra, and Santos Garcia helped create personalized etchings for wine glasses.

Thanksgiving has come and gone, but we still want to express gratitude to several outstanding volunteers. Without your help, our first-ever Autumn on the Lawn would not have been such an amazing night!
