For the second year in a row, with reservations for 430 friends, The Great Harvest ~ An Evening to Care set a record! It was a fantastic party raising nearly $270,000. We welcomed friends, old and new, to the Irving Convention Center grand ballroom, and it was the perfect setting for this gala that celebrates the work of Irving Cares.
The Great Harvest has raised more than $2.5 million since its inception in 1991. Guests enjoyed a lively evening with auction bidding and a silver ticket raffle where the winner chose the wine train trip to Napa Valley from the live auction. Dinner of short ribs and Chicken Florentine was exceptionally prepared, and served by Irving Convention Center staff. Many thanks to Cydney Roberts, 2016 Chair, for coordinating a truly milestone event.
We look forward the 2017 event, tentatively scheduled for September 22, 2017 at Irving Convention Center where we will celebrate the 60th Birthday of Irving Cares.
