Then on Friday evening beginning at 6:00 we welcome you with a fabulous party at the home of Katy Peterson.  You will enjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres, wine and non-alcoholic drinks as well as a breath-taking view.  Tickets for this event are $25 and support the St. George Scholarship fund.  It is an event you won’t want to miss.
