THANK YOU to everyone who joined us for Martinis for Marcfirst! We had a fantastic turnout, enjoyed martinis by our celebrity bartenders, got to hear Martha’s story and view local artwork! We did all of this AND raised money for over 800 children, families and adults with developmental disabilities in McLean County.

Because of you, over $25,000 will go directly to programs and services Marcfirst provides! Over 35 items were featured in our Silent Auction and Raffles, including hand-painted martini glasses and experiences and items from local businesses, raising over $4,600!

We are so excited to announce that the board filled up at Martinis and we were able to draw the winner that night! We used a Google Random Number Generator and Number 95 was selected.
