Preston Pearson resumed his role as co-chair Monday night, working the crowd as they ate, danced, and bid on sports memorabilia. His work on this event over the past 9 months made for a great evening, with the overall total for North Texas Food Bank raised being 103% of goal at $195,523! There was a special tribute to Janie Tilford, former co-founder of Pro-Style Associates.
