UPC hosted its annual Gala on October 8, 2016. This year’s theme is Secret Garden, and did they go all out on it!

There were strings of lights, chocolate fountains, flower arches, flower arrangements, and a whole Jazz band. Although the weather got a little cold (typical bipolar Ohio), the turnout was great (food was gone in like an hour if that’s any indication).
