This event is particularly important to Frontline. It's really the first time Frontline has made the leap into the large fundraising arena. The Ballroom holds 300 people, and our goal is to meet that. But we really need your help. We must get these tickets sold in advance. We need you to get some friends together, or bring your relatives.  Think of some people who would love to laugh and would love to feel the energy that will be ever present on this special evening. Please help us.
