Hundreds of guests enjoyed the cocktail hour followed by a scrumptious dinner of sliced sirloin of beef and English style filet of sole. Chocolate decadence cake was on the menu for dessert. The entertainment menu was equally as delicious, first up was Bashir and You followed by DJ Mac and Flo Wilson.
There was plenty of time for dancing and mingling and time to celebrate the birthdays of Christina Wilds and Anita Edwards Harshaw (event co-chair). Erma Conn served as co -chair with Harshaw. Included on the committee: Jackie Blakey Tate, Peggy Harris, Lula Hortman, Lisa Issac, Toni Kendrick, Janice Matuscak, Sonja McLaughlin, Mary Pat Ware and Christina Wilds. A very special thanks went out to Natisha D. Frye.
