Over 300 people joined us on November 30th to celebrate the work of The Community Foundation in Montgomery County and to salute our 2017 Philanthropist of the Year, Cliff White.

We wish to extend a special thank you to the Celebration Sponsors, Host Committee, and everyone who contributed to make the night a success.  Proceeds raised will help The Community Foundation in Montgomery County to meet its goal of addressing critical community needs by investing in high-impact nonprofit organizations and inspiring more people to give!

Thank You to Our Host Committee and Celebration Sponsors
