27th Annual Awards Dinner

YOU ARE A ROCK STAR!

Bright Lights!  Adoring Fans!  Instant Recognition!  The life of a rock star would be exciting and exhilarating.  We all want to be admired and recognized for our talents and contributions to our community.  And that’s what happened on Sunday, March 31 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Reading when the 27th Annual Awards Dinner was held.

Is that the group KISS in the background? Who knew they would be attending! David, Joseph, and Brian are rocking on with their air guitars as KISS looks on.

We rocked on with over 200 guests who attended to recognize the “rock stars” in their lives.  The first set of awards is bestowed upon our community friends and supporters in recognition of their super terrific support.
