The Ring Dance and Dining Out has been managed by Encore Live!
We want to thank KiKi and her team for their support and professionalism during the planning of this special night.
They have gone above and beyond and saved the cadets a substantial amount of money with their vendor relationships.
This, in turn, reduced the cost of their Ring Dance tickets.
