Thank you again on behalf of our community. The block party was a huge success! We did go over the budget but the event was more successful this year than our last two years of hosting. We had many locals sponsors as Frankies G's giving away a VIP dinner for four, a free appetizer on the back of our invites, the local liquor store gave us a BBQ to draw for, Rozzini's restaurant contributed tones of great food and two gift cards, Pacific Breeze Winery gave us a private tasting for four and Boston pizza a gift free card. It wa a great event, we hope to do it again next year, thanks again.
