2016 AFCCA Annual Convention Fundraiser for the Foundation for Children

What an incredible night June 14, 2016 was. We are incredibly grateful for the support that was shown to the AFCCA Foundation for Children by our sponsors, donors and the attendees. Because of you we were able to raise $5,985 between the auction and ticket sales!

The show was sold out and ended up with standing room only. We started the evening with a cocktail reception, with drink tickets sponsored by Matthews/Aurora Funeral Solutions, and appetizers (who loved those bacon wrapped jalapeño chicken bites…yummm) sponsored by Handley Precast Systems.

Then Steve Handley kicked off the live and silent auction. We had some really amazing prizes donated by our vendors, firm members and many others. Thank you to all who donated auction items:
