After cocktails and hors d’oeuvres on the veranda, 265 guests made their way to the Mediterranean-style ballroom.

Auctioneer Bill Menish brought in record-breaking donations. The evening netted $1.1 million dollars – a 15 percent increase over last years earnings – from sponsors and a 30-minute live auction.
