Thank you members! You showed up and we raised an amazing amount this year! $4106!!!
Through-out the year, our members donate new or “gently used” purses, (thank you Judy Klep, Edna Hawk, Penny Lowry and Bonnie VanValkenberg, to name a few) or fun little trinkets (or shoes!) to put inside the purses or gift bags, (thank you Steve Young, Shelly McCullough and Lorraine Wesolowski). I am never too sure who exactly drops off donations, so if I have missed someone, I apologize, but please know you are appreciated and important to the success of this fun event!
Special thanks to our crew: Jeff Tucker, our auctioneer! Our “lunch lady cashier'”: WMP Schonda Yamry, Lisa Thibodeaux, (purse model extraordinaire), and Andres Jimenez, (record keeper and auction cashier).
More Special thanks to: Robin Spicer for those wonderful flyers! Lisa Tibodeaux for Purse Auction Pre SetUp. Penny Lowry and Kelli Tauvell for help with “day of” set up and tear down.
The “men” of the FOE #3054 Aerie for your “special donation” …every year the men pool together and “win” a purse that is then gifted one special lady…although they are all special this year’s purse was gifted to Kelli Tauvell in gratitude for all she does for our wonderful Club.
Last but never least: The Small Businesses that supported! Judy’s Bags, Shell’s Kitchen and High Strung Christmas Lights. As announced at the Purse Auction: High Strung Christmas Lights is going to donate Christmas Lights, complete with Installation and Removal for 2 of our deserving families this Holiday Season!
Editor’s Note: “This Week At The Aerie” is updated every Thursday (or when someone sends in news/event), and also sent out to the Eagles mailing list. If you have events coming up, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight Wednesday for inclusion here. Remember to include dates, times and other specifics (costs, menu, benefit/charity name, volunteer needs, etc.), so it is all ready to be added to the site and weekly emails.
I would like to give a Big shout out to all of the volunteers, the Auxiliary, and Fryer Tuk (whom I forgot to mention at burger nite) for an amazing picnic! Our club is amazing, our membership is amazing, and our web master is amazing!!!!
To everyone who came out to support FISH at burger nite, Mahalo for your support. We didn’t break the record, but 50 is an Awesome showing to help support my charity. A special thanks to my amazing crew, Amie, Stephanie, Bill and Darrell. I couldn’t have done it without their support. Keep an eye out for the next FISH fundraiser starting very soon. The Marineers have kindly donated 4 tickets in a fabulous section that will be raffling off. Tickets will be available behind the bar shortly.
Father’s Day went very well. We ran out of food! Here is the list of all the volunteers that helped make it a success and I would like to thank all of them:
