Eric Boyd is CAR's President. “Tonight is about having fun,” Boyd said. “Our entertainment committee put in a lot of work to bring this event together, and it has been a beautiful evening so far. People are still arriving, but I think we are expecting a total of about 160 people.”
Early in the evening most of the downstairs tables were full. Everyone was enjoying the buffet table and cocktail bar. Boyd announced that the upstairs gaming tables would be opening soon.
“So, we're about to start the gaming,” Boyd said. “We'll let people try their luck at the tables for a while, and then we have a magic show coming up. There will also be an auction this evening. We have several gift baskets that were donated by some of our affiliate sponsors.”
