Two Great Events Benefiting
the Sanctuary on 8th Street


Thank you to everyone who attended the Sanctuary on 8th Street’s annual friend-raiser Friday, Sept. 21 at the Garden Club. The evening was a wonderful success. Special thanks to the Delores Barr Weaver Forever Event Fund for hosting the event.

This year’s theme was a nod to neighbors and community. Think of a serendipitous gathering with friends on your front porch. Featuring dinner by Bono’s & Pastiche Catering, music by The Wetland String Band and a small silent auction. The Shindig is a Delores Barr Weaver Forever Event Fund event.
