As with all SHAREing & CAREing fundraisers, 2015’s “Roaring Twenties” event was a testament to the power of community relationships and local giving. The night was filled with Prohibition style cocktails, dancing, gambling tables with generous prizes from local vendors, and of course, delicious 1920’s themed eats and cocktails like only Gianna of Manducatis Rustica can serve up. The attention to detail was incredible!
We want to give our heartfelt thanks to:
