We had a blast! The venue is incredible!! The show was fantastic. I was singing along to every song :) Definitely will be back! Always feels great to give back to worthy organizations. Their educational programs are inspiring youth to achieve things they never thought possible. This one is especially exceptional!!

We went there with a group of friends. Very pleasant and friendly atmosphere. Food was good and service was consistent. The show is always entertaining and the Chair person goes on stage and speaks about what FPPDT is all about. Great for kids
