From the Bottom of My Heart: Thank You

Well, Kentucky Derby Party 2012 is in the books.  All in all it was a great time.  The turnout was good, we raised some great money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and the food & drink was exceptional!

I want to take this time to thank some folks.  Without you, this event just wouldn’t have been possible.

Atlantic Drift: You guys are great.  The bidding was incredibly tense over the tour visor.  Grant Hewit at Hudson Sutler:  That was a close one wasn’t it?  Thanks a million for being there for us.  William and Margaret at Wm Lamb & Son: I lost out on the bidding for the painting, but that’s what it’s all about.  I tip my hat to you two!  Pheasants Forever:  Thank you for everything.  You are a world-class organization that I’m proud to know.  Eric Corbyn at Corbyn’s: I thank you for everything.  Hope to see you soon!  Andrew at Luxley & Bernard: What an awesome package you put together for us!  I can’t thank you enough!  April at True Texas Designs:  Thank you so much for everything…the planter was a huge hit!  Casey Renner at Palo Duro Creek Golf Course:  Thank you for everything bud.  You’re one of a kind sir.  Tim at Canyon Country Club:  I want to apologize in advance for who won the bidding on the rounds of golf…in fact, I should probably give Casey a heads up as well! 

If you are reading this, please check out these companies.  They are truly wonderful people.

A special thanks to those who helped us bring all of this together:  Keith Brown.  Mr. Brown, you’ll never know how much I appreciate everything you do.  Dirk Swope.  We did it bud!  Now we just have to start planning for it all over again!  Jason Avent.  You sir are a true gentleman.  I am proud to call you my good friend and part-time financier.  The men of Sigma Nu, Eta Delta Chapter.  You boys are fine young gentlemen.  Thank you for all of your hard work.

To everyone that attended, I appreciate you spending your time and hard-earned money to help us raise money for a good cause.  I look forward to seeing all of you next year.  I’ll leave you with a few snapshots of the event.
