img_0358Thank you to all who came to the TEAM Charlotte Fundraiser Benefit.  What a complete success, and a huge THANK YOU must go out to Lois and Rick Melito.  You are truely two of the most wonderful people in the entire world, and we love you both very much.

The fundraiser started at about 1pm, with Melvin the Magnificent taking the stage at 1:30pm.  His show was great, and both kids and adults had much fun.

Next up was the ice cream social, where there was loads of ice cream, and loads of social mixing. What fun…

After the ice cream, we could bowl.  This also was much fun, and folks had a really good time.
