The 2017 gala co-chairs are Michelle Korsmo, Colman Riddell and Amy Porter Stroh, who are inviting one and all to come and enjoy a great night of fun with friends and neighbors for a great cause. As a plus, because the Mark Twain Award will be presented to David Letterman on the following night, expect some serious celebrity watching in and around the Four Seasons.
