“It’s a labor of love for our small organization to make this evening possible,” says organizer Jamie Shanker, the Commercial Corridor Revitalization and Business Association Manager for Mt. Airy USA. “We do it because of how much people around the city love it and also because we are proud to showcase our community.”
