Jonathan Cohn was honored as the 2018 Distinguished Community Leader, and three residents were recognized with the Clifton R. Cohn Community Leader Award. Guests dressed as their favorite fairytale or storybook character and enjoyed signature cocktails, a gourmet dinner, auctions, and dancing in an enchanted forest.
