Brothers and our Silhouettes teamed up again for a great Christmas Party. Brothers and Silhouettes were requested to bring a gift or gift card for families that were not as fortunate. We collected approximately $750.00 in gift cards and approximately $250.00 in actual gifts. The gifts were distributed on Monday, December 21, 2015 to three families. The faces of the people that received the gifts baskets were priceless and their thanks still continue to this day.
