Several members of the the Bridges of Hope Foundation, which is associated with the wives of the Discount Tire executives, volunteered with the registration process. Veteran's were acknowledgemed for their accomplishments. And, we had more attndees than anticipated, not to mention great food and wine! The high school art competition was won this year by Abigail Quaranta, Chandler High School Fine Arts Department. Thank you Veterans, Volunteers, Attendees, and art donors!
