Hundreds gathered downtown Saturday night for the 5th Annual Sunshine Gala thanks to the local Automobile Dealers Association and Rotary Club.

The fundraiser featured a Mardi Gras theme at the Convention Center. It raised money for the Rotary's sunshine campus, a local campground for children with disabilities.

"We just want to try to do something for local children's charities here in town to just help the community and help these kids have a great experience," RADA president Brad McAreavy said.

Nearly 500 people attended the event.
