    Thank you, Hairnet Heroes, for a wonderfully fun and extraordinarily productive night! You were moving so fast to the groovin' tunes that, with 62 boxes packed, you actually helped beat FMSC's evening goal by 6 boxes! Because of you, 36 of this world's most desperately malnourished children will be fed for an entire year! Thank you for truly making a difference in our world, Phoenix Philanthropists! Check out the pics that are now posted. Hope to see all of you next time, or at another great PP event!
