CFAW Holiday Party!

Over 100 members came out to join in the festivities. The party was very lively as members connected with new and familiar faces, enjoyed holiday drinks, and gourmet oeurs d'oeurves. After a health dose of celebration and networking, the evening slowly wound down with several members leaving with a gift from CFAW.

Thank you to everyone who attended the holiday party, and Happy Holidays to all CFAW members!
