Guests enjoyed the gourmet cuisine by Continental Services’ Corporate Executive Chef Chuck Sansone, premium cocktails and beverages, music by the renowned Persuasion band, raffle prizes and great camaraderie. Event photographs will appear in the September/October issue of Ambassador Magazine.

Rain was predicted but fortunately held off and our guests partied from departure to return.

Judge Claudia Morcom, Fox 2 Vice President Dana Hahn, Fox 2 Health Producer Sean Lee, Free Press Editorial Writer Jeff Gerritt and about 200 other guests were on board, mingling with friends and enjoying the sensations of a lovely evening.

Our President and CEO, Irva Faber-Bermudez, thanked the sponsors, supporters and guests and was delighted that the evening was more than she imagined. Because it’s all about people, some individuals who receive services and are in DCC programs were invited as guests and some enjoyed their first boating experience.

“I just wanted to let you know what a nice time my husband and I had last night on the cruise. We really enjoyed the band, the food and the company. DCC’s staff did a wonderful job pulling everything together.”  Jan Heft, Community Care Services

“It was a great cruise and we had a wonderful time!”  Jason & Chapri Paulateer, PNC Community Development Banking
