Community of the Good Shepherd – Dinner Dance & Silent Auction

Community of the Good Shepherd recently held its 15th Annual Dinner Dance and Silent Auction at the Ritz Charles.  “Play Among the Stars” was the theme of the event.  Tony Antonucci entertained the guests during the cocktail hour, and DJ John Barnhart kept everyone dancing.  Marsha Daley and Cathy Anielak served as the co-chairmen.  Proceeds benefited the Community of the Good Shepherd, which provides residential and day care services to adults with developmental disabilities.
