MACL welcomes summer with a fundraising gala

Mission Association for Community Living hosted a gala fundraiser on the weekend

A sold-out crowd attended the 2017 Welcome Summer Gala, a fundraising event for the Mission Association for Community Living on Saturday night.

The event, which took place at the Best Western Plus, featured a live and silent auction, raffles, prizes and plenty of fun.

Entertainment was provided by Hula Dancer Kelsey Rogers as well as members of the Spirit of the Pacific Cultural Society Dancers.

A photo booth was also on hand that allowed people to take fun pictures. Some people were even brave enough to pose with some of the reptiles that were on hand.
