Our sincere gratitude starts with the wonderful volunteers that graciously gave up their time and brought great energy and smiles for all of the guests. Thanks to the Junior League of Orange County, Khol's Rancho Santa Margarita Associates in Action team, Kirk Tsai (UCI MBA), Joe Valdez (UCI Student), our volunteer interns Di and Cheryl, and of course, our ever-supporting family and friends that came to help.

Big thanks to our event sponsors. Eureka Building (w/ special shout out to Taylor Kirk), The Euro Caffe, Santa Margarita Ford, and the Orange County Association for the Education of Young Children. We literally couldn't have done this without your support.

We had a number of community supporters that provided critical in-kind donations, including the Home Depot Foundation, the Art Supply Warehouse, DJ Eko, Vocademy, Trevor Ali Graphics, and the Long Beach Depot for Creative Reuse.

Finally, we'd like to thank our advisory board and event committee board for all of their help. Specifically, Chantal Lamourelle and Anthony Eisenman, from our event committee, brought a lot of great ideas, passion, and hours in the planning of the event during the past three months. Much love!
