A huge THANK YOU to all who participated in the Blood Drive. While mother nature took her toll, with cancellations and no-shows, we still had a big enough turnout to collect around 40 units of whole blood. And that's not bad, considering one unit of blood can save up to 3 lives, that's 120 lives we potentially affected positively yesterday. Actually we had the largest ever online signup with close to 50 pre-registered through the marketing campaign of the last 30 days.
Our fourth annual Nite at the Races fundraiser was awesome. Thank you to all members and friends who volunteered and helped make it so successful and so much fun. We had our biggest event ever with about 200 ticket sales and raised almost $12,000 with a combination of tickets, auction items, script and sponsorship. We had our first ever Triple Crown sponsor Summerset Senior Living - thank you very much. Our other major sponsors were Sierra Pacific Industries, Tobias Mortgage, Mertens Insurance, Lincoln Gun Exchange and Energy Saving Pros - Thank you. Also thanks to everyone who donated raffle prizes and worked hard to make the event a success. And lastly, THANK YOU to the attendees who all made this such a fun event.
David Bonilla did a great job as the Master of Ceremonies. Ed Page won the hat competition for his "funny" hat.
