Great Turnout

thanks Takeme but Melly and Kelly were the superstars of organizing this event and I was just one of many awesome volunteers to help make this a success. Thanks to Gator from NRS for coming out and working the raffle sales and to all the other businesses and individuals for donating products and services for the silent auction.

Here are a few pics. Enjoy!

Glad to hear everything went well, wish I could of been there. Most importantly I hope a lot of cash was raised for Tony. Secondly - If we weren't able to make it when will we know if we won something?

Cat Winner

The Winner of the Jacks Cat Package was Andy Gresh who has donated it to the Big Brothers/Big Sisters Organization. I am not sure if they plan to use it on the water or if they are going to use it as a fundraiser. If it goes back on the block I will be sure to post it here.

I would also like to thank everyone here for their support. My benefit on Saturday night was a huge success and a really good time. Thank you all for your support, i would not be doing as well as i am without it. Thanks, Tony

For any of the items that weren't picked up and paid for at the event, we'll be calling people today to let them know.

'Twas a killer turnout. A huge thanks to all of you who bought tickets and/or came to the event!

Just wanted to say it was an incredible turn out and a great show of support from paddlers and non paddlers alike. I had no idea how big of a success that night was going to be. To put it in perspective, the beer lines were huge, raffle tickets were selling like hotcakes and the entire crowd was super stoked to be there. Our heads felt the Ska beer in the AM, but well worth it. Great job to all that put this event on. Good luck Tony with your recovery this winter.
