A sincere thank you for attending (or supporting) the Swanky Soirée Fundraiser in support of Life is a Good Run. The evening was enjoyed by all, complete with wonderful food, live music by Brian Letourneau, the Capital Roadrunner Choir debut and the good company of Capital Roadrunners members and many friends. A silent auction and rousing tooney auction led by the vibrant Qi Wang, contributed to the success of the fundraiser, raising more than $4,200 for Life is a Good Run (there are still a few dollars to collect before a final tally is recorded).
A warm thank you to all of the many businesses and individual donors for their very generous donations. Please support these establishments throughout the year and tell them that you heard about their generous donations at the Annual Capital Roadrunners Swanky Soirée.
