21st Annual Awards Dinner
We filled the ballroom at The Reading Country Club on Sunday, April 28, 2013 with over 250 guests at the 21st Annual Awards Dinner. The awards program recognizes program participants and community supporters for their outstanding service. Tagged as an event of “Celebrating You,” we honored our guests because in the whole world, there is only one YOU!
With a new venue selection, the committee faced some logistical challenges. We were blessed with a beautiful day, however, and some of our guests were thrilled to arrive at the door via golf carts. Thanks to everyone for their cooperation.
