A big THANK YOU to all who helped make The Bootleggers' Bash Annual Fundraiser a roaring (20's) success! Thank you table sponsors, prize donors, the band, photographer, attendees who really got into the spirit of the event, and the staff and volunteers who donated their time and talents before, during and after the party.

The photos for the Bash can be viewed at the Deanna Siegle Photography webpage, and ordered there online from Deanna.  Make sure you check out the color and b&w photos. Beautiful!
