SBI Gala Secures Important Funding

Heartfelt thanks to all those who attended and contributed to SBI's 18th Annual Auction Gala on March 29, 2014.

SBI would like to spotlight our top Gala sponsors and acknowledge their generous support.
Almost 400 boot-scootin' guests who line danced; feasted on gourmet appetizers and dinner; bid-up great silent- and live-auction items and played a giant, human heads-or-tails game! A total of $163,000 (but still rising) was raised. These critical funds go directly to services for clients. (SBI's administrative costs are a very lean 13%!) Thank you very much for your continuing to keep SBI going strong! Please scroll down for information on next year's gala!
