Join us for a very special reception on Saturday, October 13, from 7 to 10 PM, at the Holiday Inn near Cal Expo (adjacent to our chosen hotel for lodging).

The fundraising reception will feature an open bar of selected beer, wine, and other beverages,  appetizers, snacks, and desserts, and the first opportunity to meet many of our speakers. Guests will enjoy live entertainment, donor recognition, and exclusive gifts.
