Last weekend's Funganza event was an unqualified success with over 300 people attending. Everyone had a great time and got to meet Meeka and Jonathan from our team.
The organizing company behind Funganza, SOALSA Planners Inc., sent a nice thank you letter and let us know that $2,600.00 was raised for the Children's Wish Foundation. A great turnout for a great cause!!
