"Jack and Patti Stentz put on one of the best dinner parties ever for DFP. The house rocked with oldies played by the group Bonita City Limits (the band's new name) and everyone was dancing in the moon light! The food was as fabulous as the music--chocolate martinis, lovely appetizers, steaks, potatoes, carrots, and America's favorite apple pie ala mode. The gracious hosts kept the dinner party lively from dance contests to trivia games. What a night to remember." Josie Guenther, Co-VP of Fundraising & attendee (see pictures below)
