Video from the 18th Annual Cocktail Party & Auction

On Saturday, July 9, 2016, the SCEF once again held its Annual Cocktail Party & Auction. This event is one of the true high spots of the summer season with great food, drink, and wonderful people, all, for a wonderful cause. And, once again, Chantal and Richard Berman were kind enough to offer their lovely home as the site of this year’s Cocktail Party & Auction.
