Thank you to our wonderful Gala Co-Chairs, Kimberly and Brent Tipps, and Emcee of the evening, Laura Harris, for making the 16th Annual GRACE Gala one we will not forget! From the unforgettable opening song of ‘Amazing Grace’ by Rocco and Frankie Leoni, to the beautiful selfie wall that so many posed in front of, to the Walton Stout Band for cranking out the party jams — we are thankful to you and everyone who made this night meaningful start to finish!
We are so very grateful for Pastors Cyd and Ricky Texada of Covenant Church for attending and leading our Invocation. Auctioneer Mike Jones led the lively and generous Live Auction – one of the many highlights of the evening. To mention another high point of the evening includes a grand congratulations to Lynda and Robert Warner, our Angel of GRACE Award recipients for 2019!
