Thank You to Sponsors & Volunteers Too!

Dozens of volunteers and many business sponsors and friends came forward to help with the production of "Party for A Cause," and we wish very sincere thanks to all of them. A special thanks to Lisa Brown for getting the ball going, to Kary McElroy for her enthusiasm, to Diane Sabin and Leslie Ewing for their wisdom, to Char Levitt and Carmen Morrison for their guidance, to Jody Cole and Alexa Rasmussen for their expertise, to Grace Floyd and Mary Ann Brown for their support in many ways, to all of the Co-Producers and so, so many more . . . the list goes on and on!

To all these faithful volunteers and supporters, we say "THANK YOU!"

We at Betty's List also wish to express thanks to all volunteers and supporters of "Party for A Cause." With only a few short weeks to prepare for an event of this magnitude, it was thanks to the community-wide support of dozens of leaders and volunteers that the occasion was even possible.
