THANK YOU TO ALL! BEEFSTEAK DINNER A HUGE SUCCESS!

A big thank you to everyone who worked to make the Beefsteak Dinner an amazing success! There were over 160 in attendance, and our profit thus far is $6,500 and counting - all toward our historic sanctuary renovation project. Thanks to all who worked behing the scenes and all who supported us by attending, selling tickets, selling ads for the Ad Book and donating to our Tricky Tray! And a very special thank you to our featured performer, Bobby Valli, who volunteered his time and talent on our behalf, turning an otherwise fun and profitable evening into a night we all will remember.
