Our 40 for a Cause Fundraiser was a HUGE success! Benefiting The Autism Tree Project and commemorating Gabhart Investments, Inc. President, Curtis Gabhart, raising over $16,50574494_10151589086958503_781078808_n0!

Over 200 guests turned out for the party, including Supervisor Dave Roberts and representatives for Councilman Scott Sherman, Senator Marty Block, Senator Joel An295947_10151593108068503_425724907_nderson, Assemblyman Brian Jones, Congressman Scott Peters, and Assemblyman Brian Mainschein. We were so delighted to have Susan DeVincent, host of KYXY’s Afternoon Ride, emcee the event. The night was filled with fun and excitement as guests enjoyed food & drinks, live music, and massages courtesy of Spa Veila. Guests were captivated as they watched artist Gloria Muriel spend the evening painting a beautiful original piece, which was auctioned off at the end of the evening.

The photo booth provided by 5th Ave Photo Booths was big hit! Guests spent the evening dressing up and snapping shots of themselves with friends! The keepsake photos are no doubt adorning refrigerators and mirror frames throughout the county!
