Special thanks to our presenting sponsors Food Lion Feeds and the Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority, attendees and our other event sponsors. Tremendous thank you to each of the potters who created all of the beautiful bowls that made this event possible. Special thanks to our friends at GoPlaySave Charlotte for donating the coupon books that are such an amazing part of this event.

Also, thanks to Maureen O'Boyle from WBTV News for joining us again this year as our host. Another thanks to Hanoch Hickman, Creative Director at The Company Band and Music Director at Noc Noc Productions, for providing the wonderful music during the event.

Our silent auction would not have been possible without the generous support of each of the companies, organizations, and individuals who secured and donated items - a huge thank you to each of them.
