Congressman Darin LaHood and Congressman Rodney Davis were gracious to send a video greeting and congratulations to the winners. We had a very successful silent auction and enjoyed tales from the White House with Chef Marti. He did VIP photos in a green room for special VIP packages during the reception. We really appreciated hiring this speaker who provided the gold medals and jewel boxes free of charge to honor local volunteers that we nominated.
