Patti Carroll of Hollywoodland Realty served as MC announcing sponsors and prizes.


The Time Piece Jazz ensemble kept the crowd moving on the packed sidewalk near popular Prado.

The sidewalks spilled over with people as supporters walked from business to business sampling the food options and getting their “Official Line Up Cards” checked off.
