The Civic Media Center’s 24th Anniversary event at the Matheson Museum on Oct. 20 was a great success. Thank you to all who attended or sent in a donation to help us start the 24th year of operations.
It was great to have such a big crowd to mark the occasion: to present a surprise gift to honor one of the CMC’s most loyal volunteers Gaby Gross, to introduce a new CMC co-coordinator Kaithleen Hernandez, and have a keynote address from Carol Thomas, as well as the Penrod Award presentation to Candi Churchill. Numerous raffle items were claimed and all the silent auction items were bid on and purchased. Special thanks go to John Moran and Eric Admunson for their art donations. The Matheson was a great host, and thanks, also, to the CMC volunteers and Board members who shared their time nd efforts.
The food was awesome and without the following restaurants we would have been eating pizza: Andaz Indian Restaurant and Bar, Civilization, Elegant Events, Elizabeth Dionisi, Emiliano’s Cafe, Opus Coffee, Paramount Grill, Reggae Shack Cafe, Satchels, and Vine Organic Breads and Pasta. D
