A Little Night Music = A Huge Success!

The reviews are in!  By all accounts, the sold-out crowd had a fanastic time last Wednesday night at Bloedel’s fund raising event “A Little Night Music”!  Under the watchful eyes of the winged residents, supporters fully enjoyed decadent chocolates, a little bubbly, and classical serenades. Thank you to all who made it out for another special night under the dome!

Terrific shots of the evening are posted on Flickr Photostream. Great work J. Scott! (jscott7357).
