Special thanks to our presenting sponsors Food Lion Feeds and 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 Real Estate Transition Team for donating the GoPlaySave Charlotte coupon books that are such an amazing part of this event.

Also, thanks to Kristen Miranda, Managing Editor of Lifestyle Content at WBTV News and co-host of QC Morning and QC@3, for joining us as our event host.

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.
