The Relay Team hopes to raise $120,000 when they will swim the English Channel from England to France, and back, during the London Olympics next July. The Team wants to beat the previous record of 18 hours and 59 minutes.
The evening will feature a strolling supper, cocktails, desserts, great live music and both a silent and live auction. For the second year in a row, Sandy and Kevin Sloan, DDS MS, will be providing a Golden Doodle puppy for the live auction.
