Building Support for Gary's House

    Four construction firms hammered it out on the cooking stage at the annual Gourmet Gala for Gary's House, with the chefs from Thomas & Lord taking home the trophy for "Corporate Chopped Champion." They bested Landry/French, Cianbro and Consigli.

    Several auction and raffle items were won in addition to the 100 bottles of wine on the Wine Wall.
