More than 80 party-goers came out for our most successful fundraiser ever, “Fairy Tales Come True” at the Monte Rio Community Center on April 27. We honored local legend Christina, who has donated her home, talent and enthusiasm to FoVG since the beginning. Thank you Christina!  Also thanks to the 16 donors for their silent auction items, Lisa Wallen of Floribunda for the flowers and Hensley Event Rentals for the linens and decor. 

The wonderful furniture and fire pits came from Shelter-Co, courtesy of their CEO and FoVG board member, Kelsey Sheofsky, who also brought along her gourmet caterer, Componere Fine Catering, which donated the terrific food.

The event happened thanks to the “Fairy” Committee of Nancy Lopes, Jim Beck, Andrea Buffa, Kyla Brooke, Roberto Esteves and Kelsey Sheofsky.  Special thanks to John Berens for the lighting, Kristy Bella for her bartending, and the team that handled logistics. Thanks to all!
