Sizzling Celebration

Thank You for Sizzling!

What an evening! Our guests came to Sizzle! They were greeted by fabulous fire performers on the front lawn of Third Degree Glass Factory, were amazed by a magician who performed impossible-to-believe tricks, took whacky photos with all sorts of funny props, were awed by the live glass blowing demonstration, indulged in delicious appetizers, a boozy coffee bar and warm cookies on the patio, enjoyed the marvelous Kim Massie and her Solid Senders band, AND generously supported finding forever families for children in foster care.

A Sizzling Celebration raised almost $220,000! Grateful thanks to our generous sponsors, those who donated auction items, and all of our guests who made it an evening to remember. Thank you to the committee of volunteers who planned such a fun party. A very special thank you to our wonderful emcee and auctioneer, Rene Knott of KSDK 5 On Your Side. Rene is passionate about our kids and it came through loud and clear. Thank you, Rene for caring so deeply!

Special thanks to Mick Bingaman Photography for capturing the evening in pictures.

We’ll Sizzle with you next year at
The Caramel Room on
Friday, November 9, 2018!
