The Evans family joined a sold-out crowd for the Mike Evans Family Foundation’s first-ever Gala. Several of Mike’s teammates were in attendance, along with our 13 Pillars of Strength Honorees. Thanks to the support of all attendees, this inaugural event raised an incredible amount to further Mike and Ashli’s mission to help others.
