The program streamed live on www.daytonfoundation.org and the Foundation’s Facebook page and included lively performances from the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra’s Brass Quintet and Grammy-nominated Central State University’s Chorus, heartwarming stories and a couple of exciting announcements that will positively impact Greater Dayton - including the launch of the 100 Gifts to the Community campaign.
