Spectacle on Spectacle

Spectacle on Spectacle was a huge success. With the generosity and enthusiasm of our supporters, this year’s Spectacle on Spectacle exceeded our expectations with close to 400 guests in attendance. This year’s guests enjoyed gourmet cocktail bites and craft beverages from our local vendors including delicious oysters by Wulf’s Fish (thank you!), and the incredible and electrifying music of local performing artist Miranda Rae.

The evening’s highlight was hearing from our honorees Cathy and Jim Stone, as they were celebrated and honored for their decades of dedication, philanthropy, and accomplishments. In her remarks to guests at the gala, Cathy reminded us all: 

 “It is up to us to join forces, and we believe that only through partnership and bold action will we make progress towards becoming true stewards of the planet and all its human and ecological diversity.” 

– Cathy Stone

Special thanks to all of our special guests who attended this year’s event including our elected officials.
