Happy Sunday Mighty Hawk Band!
Congratulations to everyone for making the 8th annual Jazz Dinner and Auction a success. The event would not be possible without everyone’s efforts. From the section baskets, to the corporate and individual donations, to the dinner and entertainment, everyone did just did a great job.
