When we started planning the first "In Great Spirits" event in Fargo last year, we never dreamed that in just one year we would double the amount of money raised, increase attendance by 40% and amass such an esteemed list of community members and businesses as friends and supporters.
It is in the greatest of spirits that we say THANK YOU to our event sponsors, Proof and Happy Harry's. Without their generous support- in finances, products, time and expertise- our magical evening would not have been possible.
It is in the greatest of spirits that we say THANK YOU to our food and beer sponsors! Without you, our tastebuds would not have been able to join the celebration! We could not have asked for better food to pair with our fabulous gin, whiskey, wine and beer! Also, a special thank you to Ilda Pérez, who created handmade empañadas for us to enjoy and to Atomic Coffee for the coffee to compliment them!
It is in the greatest of spirits that we say THANK YOU to all of our volunteers! Nicole, Liz, Sue, Tim, James, Jennifer, Adam, Brooke, Linda, Ryan, Susan, Kyle, Caleb, Cindey, Jane, Mary Lou and Veronica, you made the event the grand success that it was! We couldn't have done it without your energy, excitement and commitment. And, we wouldn't have wanted to. Thank you for being a joy to work with!
Finally, it is in the greatest of spirits that we say thank you to YOU for joining us for "In Great Spirits" 2016 and for helping us put the FUN in FUNdraiser!
Hope to see you again next year!
