We had a successful event on Saturday at The Palindrome with 300 folks from our KPTZ Community in attendance. We want to give a big shout out to all of the volunteers who helped put this event together – you are all awesome! From planning this event, securing donations from businesses for our silent auction, setting up decorations, taking money for ticket sales and silent auction items, parking cars, cleaning up and tearing down — it takes a community to make this event a success and we are so thankful to everyone. We also thank our wonderful sponsors: John L. Scott Real Estate in PT, Autoworks, SOS Printing, and PT Fudge Company. And, thank you for the 100 complimentary fudge samples – sooo yummy. Here are some photos that show highlights of the fun time everyone had. See you all next year – mark your calendars for the first Saturday in August.

Thanks to Floating Otis for their awesome music!
