C3 made a splash in the rain!

Our Benefit Food Truck Rodeo is now behind us.  While the weather didn’t exactly cooperate, it wasn’t a wash out thanks to the support of our local community.  By any measure, the first event of our C3 Raise the Roof Campaign  a success!  We made a splash in the rain!  Check it out!
