Alexa R - $5 – for Char being an inspiration to the [Minnetonka High School Vantage students (?)]
Char M. – For the passion the Vantage Student brought to the project, the sock idea brought her back to the Flat Stanley projects her kids did. She took her kids to the lights at Valley Fair, they hung out the sun roof in December and loved it. She highly encourages others to attend.
Mark Marlin – He had a great family Christmas celebration which reminded him of his blessing. Also he loved Glen’s jacket, he is not sure if Glen should take in Vegas or New Orleans.
Bill S. – His son Brett is in GA with his fiancé and will come back and they will complete a polar plunge! Bill’s 20th Jump!
Mark Magney – Mark’s happy bucks were full of wow moments; His daughter Maya is having twins! She made it to week 37 and the induction is set for December 26th. After spending time in Idaho with the kids and grandchildren he is headed to Canada to do some helicopter skiing!
Ben M.  – He is happy to be coaching both his kids basketball teams. He is happy his dad continues to get good reports on his cancer. A few extra bucks from his raffle win.
