STARS WERE SHINING BRIGHTLY … on Alabama at Assistance League of Birmingham’s One Starry Night Gala at The Club. This party with a purpose was a huge success and from the looks on everyone’s faces – lots of fun, plus lots of dancing, and lots of money raised to help us clothe more school children and serve seniors. Assistance League of Birmingham wishes to thank all those who helped make it a success: Honoree Darwin Metcalf, Chair Cindy Wade, Co-Chair Cathy Bowman, President Barb Kelley, Auctioneer Jack Granger and team, sponsors and donors, member volunteers and especially our guests.
