(Victorville) After weeks of preparation securing entertainment, restaurants and artists, An Evening Affaire is over. Thank you to all of our guests who were able to join us. Judging by the feedback we’ve received, the food was fantastic, the music lively and it was heartwarming to see all the servicemen enjoying themselves. A huge thank you to our presenting sponsor, the Auto Park at Valley Center, for partnering with us and to The Mall of Victor Valley for opening your doors to us. Truly, without you, we would not have been able to pull off such an amazing event. To the delight of the crowd and military, Maggie Vee brought the house down with her solo saxophone version of the “National Anthem” while The Blue Henrys,The Dime Store Novelist and Elsewhere Road’s kept our guests entertained.
