Attendees and their tables all dressed up in costumes for their favorite movies or musicians, perused the silent auction and played the 50/50 and lottery raffles while enjoying dinner and drinks.

Foundation members Bobbi Kemp and Joanne Shamp co-chaired the event.

The annual fundraiser allows the foundation to give out many grants to local organizations. Some of last year's grant recipients included the Beach Choice Market, Renee's Closet at Beach Elementary School and The Mound House.

"I'm so grateful for the people who supported us. It takes a village," Kemp said. "I love the creativity everyone had."
