2015 Update

A sellout crowd of 350 guests were welcomed by Honorary Chair, Gayle Guyardo, at the 10th Annual Fiesta by the Bay fundraiser for CARD held at the Ybor City Museum Garden on April 17th.

Families, friends, teachers, professionals, students and kids of all ages enjoyed a Cuban buffet by La Septima Cafe and a dessert bar donated by ABF Behavioral Health. The Dog Saloon hosted the cash bar and DJ Tamik kept everyone on the dance floor with amazing dance music and a light show.  Glow sticks helped light the night with kid’s activities hosted by Great Explorations Children’s Museum. An amazing silent auction rounded out a fabulous evening with the entire event raising over $27,000!

Here are some of the great photos from Fiesta by the Bay 2015 taken by our community partner, professional photographer, Craig Forsell!
