Once we got everyone settled in, Walt Lindala took the mic to be the emcee for the night.  He started by thanking everyone for coming and introducing our sponsors for the evening.  After the introductions, it was time for door prizes! The whole crew was working quickly handing out door prizes left and right as numbers were being called.  Our sponsors provided some really great things including a slew of swag from Bayside Beverage, a Division of Great Lakes Wine & Spirits, gift certificates from Hudson’s Classic Grill, and more!
