This year’s show featured 38 sponsorships from local businesses up from 12 last year. Rhayn added she feels the club is showing impressive growth for being so young and that she is proud of the work they have accomplished.

“In just a short ten months we have come along way. We really look forward to returning with this show again next year,” said Rhayn who added they will also be doing a large show for theKidney Foundation in 2017.
