fruit displayI would like to personally thank David Harrelson and his committee for doing an outstanding job putting together this event. They had over 300 people in attendance and raised over 40k for SCWA programs. Seawell’s Banquet Center prepared a wonderful meal that was enjoyed by all. We would like to thank the Sponsors, Life members, Donors, and members that were a part of this event.
