THANK YOU to everyone who participated in A D’Vine Affair to benefit Marcfirst! We had a fantastic turnout, witnessed a special performance by the Marcfirst Melodies, took tours of Ewing Manor and enjoyed delicious food, compliments of Chef Troy of Biaggi’s and Jhun Medina! We did all of this AND raised money for over 800 children, families and adults with developmental disabilities in McLean County.

Check back in the upcoming weeks for pictures and to see how much we raised!

Wendell Haywood will be enjoying a fancy, six-course, wine-paired dinner for 10 in his home, compliments of Chef Troy of Biaggi’s!
