Res Fest 2013 Success dancing at Res Fest
  

Our Indoor Block party hosted by Dick Biondi on Saturday, February 16 was a great success! More than 500 guests came out for some summertime fun in February. Delicious food was served, Goose Island Beer was consumed and the dance floor was packed all night long! The game room was full and there were winners and losers at the Money Wheel. Many guests went home with one of our 52 fantastic baskets or 30 Silent Auction items.

 

A special thanks to all of the families and staff who donated wine, gift cards, basket fillers and services or came out to volunteer for the event! We appreciate the dedicated planning committee and all of our sponsors - please see more details here. What a fantastic team! 
 
 

Thank you so much!

The final $1,000 Cash Raffle Drawing was pulled by host Dick Biondi at Res Fest on February 16 and the winner was Tom Dezort. On Wednesday February 20 the final $100 student ticket-seller drawing was held and the winner was Vanessa Pedroza. Also held on February 20 was a drawing for $1,000 for all families who sold $250 or more in raffle tickets. The $1,000 family winner was the Pergam Family.
