This event was nice and had great food. I enjoyed the music and friendly volunteer/staff. I didn't think there would be any teenagers besides myself and maybe a few others; but the volunteers for the games were high school volunteers and were very nice and funny. I talked to one of them and found out she was getting community service for the event so she could go to college, which was cool, I wish her good luck (she, and the other volunteers too, were very nice to the disabled as well which warmed my heart). Great event, and I would definitely make the 2 hour trip from college to attend this again next year. I wish more people would participate for this good cause!

If you have any questions about the event, feel free to email me:

This event was so much fun! The band "Age of Reason" played great tunes through the night. The meal from Pampered Palate/Girosole was delicious. We saw a wonderful performance from a couple that learned to dance at "All About Dance" in Livermore. The evening was filled with lots of laughs, dancing and games including the cake walk which was enjoyed by all, especially the clients that are recipients of the fundraiser. Great volunteer work by the Pleasanton High School students too!
