This year we are excited to continue this tradition and celebrate coming back together as a community for a community! Bring your friends, family, and colleagues for a spirited evening featuring local craft breweries, delicious wine, amazing food, a silent auction, and live music – all while raising money to support vulnerable children and youth on the North Shore.
