What a wonderful evening we had at the Field of Dreams party on Thursday, September 15th. We had a great silent auction, a fun spread of food, and the fantastic Kay and Friends band playing so many great sports-themed tunes and joined by Dream Come True executive director and cellist Galen Wixson. We lost count of how many teams were represented, but we definitely saw a lot of burnt-orange and red white and blue being worn.
We want to thank the following people and companies for their time, work, donations, sponsorships, and moral support in putting together the Field of Dreams
