Gala Committee,
Welcome! My name is Jacque Hamilton and I am this year's Gala Chair. I would like to invite all MBC members (and parents) to be apart of this years Gala. We already have a jump start on the Gala and this year's theme is "Watergate". Obviously this is two sided as the theme plays on the Watergate DC scandal but it also is the location of our future upstream facility at Watergate Marina. Please join me as we start on the largest fundraiser of the year! Please add your name below and look for updates on when we will meat for a kick off meeting.

Kick off meeting - Tuesday September 12th, 7:30 at Bad Weather Brewing
Thank you to all that attended. We are currently accepting items and looking for volunteers. Please contact Jacque or Dan with any questions.
