Celebration Success!

This past Friday’s Imagine! Celebration was a tremendous success. Almost 470 people attended (a new record for attendance), and between sponsorships, ticket sales, a silent auction, a live auction, and a special appeal, more than $285,000 was raised to support Imagine!’s mission!

Below are just a few photos from the spectacular event.
