The 22nd Annual Leo Party, held recently at The Hidden Door, raised $16,147 for the Daire Center, the adult day care center operated by AIDS Interfaith Network. It was the second-highest amount ever raised in the long history of the fundraising party. Funds will help fund the Daire Center’s Client Service Programs, including the meals program. Anita Martini, aka Dan Perry, owner of Eagle Leather by Dan, won the title of Miss Leo 2009.
