If you weren’t at 1:AM gallery last Friday, you missed out. It was by far the most festive and entertaining opening we have ever had.
Brian Goggin knows how to throw a fundraiser. With a lot of help and support from friends, the night was filled with wonderful surprises, music, photos, cupcakes and beautiful people radiating with positive energy.
