Cocktails and Fundraising, August 13, 2016

Well, it was a success as you'll see from the photos below (click to enlarge)
August 13, 2016, will be a date to be remembered as it was a wonderful event,
a glorious California afternoon with food and drink to delight the attendees who paid no entrance fee but bid on items in a  Silent Auction, and dropped Dollars into a jar at a well stocked Open Bar
