Good Party A Huge Success

Thank you to all who supported The Good Party again this year! It was another wonderful, festive night under a beautiful tent in our 1010 Harrison Avenue parking lot.

Our generous sponsors and more than 250 attendees helped raise vital funds to support Goodwill’s job training and career services programs. Special thanks to our honorary co-chairs Keith Motley and Karen Holmes-Ward, who was also a fantastic emcee. Thank you to all the restaurants who provided delicious dinner and dessert, and all who provided wine, beer and champagne to add to the celebratory atmosphere.
