All proceeds from tonight will benefit the Jackson Center for Independent Living.

“So those dollars we use those in conjunction with volunteers to do things like build ramps, and make minor bathroom modifications and things,” Jackson Center for Independent Living Executive Director Beth James said. “So that people can stay in their homes and maybe not have to move into a nursing facility.”

There was also a silent auction at Saturday’s gala.

Event organizers say the goal is the raise about $8,000.
