Also a big thanks to the Austin Jazz Workshop musicians who delivered a sizzling one-hour set of George Gershwin material: Larisa Montanaro, Matt Russell, Michael Stevens, Kevin Scott, Jimmy Shortell, and Michael Melinger.

And speaking of auctions, a big thanks is due to all our 2016 donors.  Please express your appreciation to them, and to our host Joe’s Crab Shack, by dining/shopping with them!

It was a great time!  Thanks to all the attendees, and we hope to see you there next year!
