YouthEntity Pig Roast a success

On Saturday, June 27, 125 guests from the community gathered at the Aspen Glen Club to enjoy the seventh annual YouthEntity Pig Roast. The al fresco evening included a first course of five delicious appetizers; live music; dinner featuring a Berkshire Roast Suckling Pig and seven additional dishes; featured speaker Karla Enriquez of our ProStart program; a live auction; dessert; and dancing. The night was a big success, and we are grateful to all who attended and contributed to the event.
