Monopoly Night Deemed Big Success

Dimmitt Automotive Group was a presenting sponsor along with Decker Ross Interiors.  Charity Works’ Monopoly night at Belleair Country Club raised more than $59,000 for local community charities.

More than 300 guests enjoyed the festivities, which included a fun-filled evening of cocktails, a dinner buffet, live and silent auctions, a fast paced championship match for high priced properties like Park Place and Boardwalk, and a jail set-up on the premises. The tournament and grand prize winner was Dave Sullivan.
