The Crystal Ball, which will be awarded to our dance champions on Saturday night, is decorating the conference room for the next few days. Come see who it is handed to. Tickets are still available.
Scot Haney knocked the ball out of the park with his dance performance, but on this night his competition wasn't Joe Furey and Weather Watch, it was the five most dazzling women in all of Connecticut. The 2017 Dining & Dancing in the Dark Champions are: Amanda Raus (Fox CT) & Hanna Mordoh.
It may have been the most dazzling D&D yet, and the winners are the people all over Connecticut who use CRIS services, as the night raised record amounts to help CRIS continue its mission.
Thank you to everyone who participated and made this such a fantastic event!
