Gity for this event. It is al­ways such a good night and what the peo­ple tak­ing part do is re­ally im­pres­sive! “It takes some guts to get up there in front of so many peo­ple. “Funds raised at events like this al­low us to take our sup­port for lo­cal peo­ple even fur­ther.

“We are de­lighted to be work­ing with Com­mu­nity Link Foun­da­tion again as we have seen the ex­cel­lent causes that they help in the lo­cal area.”
