Guests were transported into the classic movie "The Wizard of Oz" through the magical scenery and props made by Chairwoman Tina Mancuso. From "Dorothy's house" in Kansas, guests followed the yellow brick road all the way to the "Merry Ol' Land of Oz." There, costumed guests dined on wonderful dishes from Stinky's Fish Camp and sipped themed cocktails, including the "Ruby Slipper" and the "Flying Monkey." Highlights from the evening include The Carbon Copy Band and United We Jam, who kept the crowd on the dance floor, and Mayor Kip Holden's selection of the costume winners. Last, but not least, was the 8-foot talking "Oz" head and the 5-foot ruby slipper, each lending to the magical fun and enjoyment—and all for a good cause! Photos by David Normand
