5th Annual TSTI Spring event

The weather that postponed the golf tournament did not impact the evening gala of the 5th Annual TSTI Spring event. It was a big success thanks to the entire event committee and those in attendance who ate, danced, bid and laughed the night away with TSTI friends!

Special congratulations again to our 2011 honorees: Breena Fishback, Mimi Braun and Barbara & David Stoller.

Stay tuned for the rescheduled golf date in July.
