For its 21st year, Sally’s Kitchen entertained the auction crowd with their melodious music and all in attendance enjoyed the fancy dancing of a proud 90-year old gentleman. It was truly a sight to see! Once again, Vivian Hickok fed the crowd with her dozens and dozens of mouthwatering cookies.
Joanne (Jodi) Phelan of Anchorage won the queen-size Rocky Mountain High Raffle Quilt made by Becky Rudisill and machine quilted by Debra Carney. Jodi has been a long-time CASA supporter, and serves as Friends of Alaska CASA’s Vice President. Congratulations, Jodi!
