Sin City

CAL SHAKES held its 12th Annual Gala on March 10th.

Chef Lance Dean Velasquez and Grace Street Floral and Event Design’s Rhonda Stoffel teamed with CAL SHAKES for their annual fundraising Gala at the Rotunda Building.

The event was a blast! With the “Las Vegas” theme that Cal Shakes choose; it was certainly a winning night!
