Our Ninth Annual Lunch was a rousing success raising over $309,000 in gross profits.  Hosting our event was the fabulous Rod Meloni who led us through a stunning night of dining, auctions and our 2017 featured video. The night began with an extravagant silent auction assembled by our Fundraising Committee who worked endlessly on retrieving donated items. A live auction lead by Christopher Aslanian who raffled off trips to Italy, a $1,000 shopping spree to Somerset, a private viewing experience in the Emagine Theatre and many more! 2018 will be our 10th year of existence at Sky and we are thrilled to bring a whole new vibe to our largest event of the year!
