The invitation went out and the response was heart-warming. Even the raindrops couldn’t keep away our ardent supports and new friends. Held at Tonic at Quigley’s Pharmacy on September 16, 2010, the event gave attendees a chance to mingle with friends, win prizes, learn more about BEF, share their thoughts, and enjoy the evening all while supporting education in Africa. The Happy Hour generated well over $2000 in donations and pledges. In addition to the monetary gifts at least two new potential volunteers have come forward. The Happy Hour was a grand success and big THANK YOU goes out to all who contributed.
