Thank you to all of those who attended the 29th Annual Steppin’ Out for The Dimock Center on Saturday November 5th. It was an incredible evening of gratitude and celebration that raised more than $800 thousand to support critical comprehensive health care and education services for our community.

In addition to the amazing support from attendees through our Impact of Your Gift, Tex-to-Give and Silent Auction, the night included outstanding entertainment from local jazz musician Andre Ward, headliners the Men of Soul: Peabo Bryson, Freddie Jackson and Jeffrey Osborne, and after party beats by Doug E. Fresh.
