The theme for this year’s event is “Celebrating 45 Years of Providing Hope” and the evening will include wine tasting, international dinner buffet and silent auction under the stars at Buono’s Authentic Pizzeria located at 250 W.

Rich Archbold, executive editor of the Press Telegram, will act as master of ceremony. Awards will also be presented to Earl B. and Loraine H. Miller Children’s Foundation, Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc., City of Paramount, NRG Energy, Paramount Petroleum Corporation, and Union Pacific Railroad for their support of the aquatic programs.
