The 29th Annual A Toast to the Triangle is in the Books!
Annual A Toast to the Triangle
is in the books! It was a stunning evening as Tammy Lynn Center welcomed 1,000 attendees to enjoy the best food and drink in the Triangle while raising more than $211,000 for Tammy Lynn Memorial Foundation—exceeding $200,000 for the second year in a row!
“What a night! For the 29th
year, Tammy Lynn Center celebrated A Toast to the Triangle
—this year bigger and better than ever before. The Center is honored and humbled to receive support from the community that surrounds us. It was a truly special night,” said Holly Richard, President and CEO.
For the third year, Steve Daniels of ABC-11 served as the evening’s Honorary Chair. Steve and ABC-11 have been long time partners of Tammy Lynn Center. “I have had the pleasure of visiting with the wonderful children at the Center and my heart swells with joy with every smile I see,” said Steve.
The Center would like to thank all of the Toast sponsors, especially our Platinum Sponsors—ABC-11, BP Studios, Burnie Batchelor Studio, Inc., Docusource, Eisai and Pepsi.
In addition to sampling from the who’s who of the Triangle food scene, guests were treated to an extensive silent auction that included sports memorabilia, vacations to Mexico and Las Vegas and one of a kind experiences such as a night in the Carolina Hurricanes press box. The raffle included a chance to win a car donated by Enterprise Rent-A-Car.
In 1986, the ﬁrst A Toast to the Triangle
™ was held to raise money to help build residential facilities at Tammy Lynn Center. Twenty-nine years later, this Triangle-wide extravaganza combines a celebration of culinary talents with a worthwhile cause--a commitment to the children, adults and families of Tammy Lynn Center. Tammy Lynn Center for Developmental Disabilities provides educational, residential and family support services to nearly 400 families throughout the Triangle. Since its inception in 1969, Tammy Lynn Center remains dedicated to providing the individuals it serves with the opportunity to maximize their abilities in a loving, nurturing environment.
