Safe Passage leaders and the board are grateful to our wonderful sponsors, a record number this year. Not one business turned us down for an auction item; we have over 100 auction donors. Our table hosts help fill the venue, and the 39 table decorators make the event barn a visual delight,” said Mary Mattingly, Community Outreach Director.
