Thank You to everyone who supported our Night Under the Stars Fundraiser! It was a huge success.

 We sold out all 160 seats, every auction item was bid on, the weather cooperated, the Cooperage catered meal was fantastic and The Sun Kings rocked it.

But the highlight of the evening was the graduation of our first class of Culinary Program students:

Ricky, Carly, Jesse, Johnathan, Maddie and Juliet.

They helped serve the food and they received their certificates of completion.   

Several will be attending the Culinary Arts Program at Diablo Valley College as a result of their participation in our program.

Also our client speaker, Alcina, who eloquently explained the importance of our food program to her family's life, made a lastly impact on the audience.


Thanks to all of our sponsors, all the donors of the dozens of auction items and to all the volunteers and staff who made the event a success.
