The fundraiser was sold out, with people enjoying both indoor and outdoor event venues, bar service - including the signature Derby Day Cocktail Mint Julep - provided by Bonner Mobile Bar and delicious hors d’oeuvres provided by Ellie’s Downtown Deli and Catering, located in downtown Stuart.

Sponsors included Advanced Technology Integrators, A3 Kleaning, Champion Property Management, South State Bank, Eberst Law Firm, PA., Rehmann, Tenzyk Family, Missigman Family and Denise Leclair-Robbins.
