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!
