The live play, "The Foreigner" was very entertaining, the buffet was absolutely delicious and the door prizes were fantastic. Class Act donated $30 from each ticket back to DWWAP. We had a sold out show and raised $ 6,330 which went directly towards our operational costs. Thank you so much to everyone who contributed, and to Class Act for a fantastic afternoon.
