Jo and Mark List are the entertainment and they are always great. It is our largest fundraiser, with proceeds from terrific silent auction items helping to benefit the marketing and development of Mound House educational programming. Our events must constantly update and become more interactive to benefit everyone – students, residents, and visitors – to effectively educate our audience.” CLICK HERE for full details.
