ACO’s MAIN EVENT Kicked Off The Holidays….
Saturday evening, November 4th was the beginning of a new era in fundraising for friends and supporters of Allen Community Outreach. More than 200 guests gathered for the “party with a purpose” to kick off the holiday season of programs at ACO. The theme was “The Season of Giving.” The format of the event was like no other in the past, as a more informal and relaxed atmosphere welcomed guests to dine from two areas, a Sliders Bar and a Pasta Bar, enjoy hors d’oeuvres passed by servers all night, drink from choices of a Martini Bar, Wine and Whiskey Bars and a Brew Bar, and later in the evening a Dessert Bar. Intimate seating areas and bar top tables took the place banquet tables of the past, a DJ played everyone’s favorites and was available for requests of guests favorite dance tunes. Silent Auctions were set in areas throughout the venue so guests could shop and bid at their leisure. No formal program, just a fabulous evening to meet and greet, eat and drink, and show support for ACO! Thank you to our sponsors, donors and guests! We hope to see you back in November 2018.
