No Dash Dessert Dash
When our Gala is in person, a highlight of the evening is the fun and delicious Dessert Dash. How do you do that at a virtual gala? OPAL has a solution! A “No Dash Dessert Dash”. We want to keep the tradition alive. Here Joe Brotherton explains how it works.
Joe and his wife Maureen own and operate the Doe Bay Resort and Retreat. They are longtime supporters of OPAL.
