My husband and I attended the charity event in May and it truly was a magical evening and the most amazing food!  It was a wonderful evening for a great cause.  It was our pleasure to be able to be a part of the evening!
Looking forward for the October charity event benefiting S.A.F.E Shelter and cooking with Paula!
