To the editor:
Thank you to everyone who supported the Stay Strong Charlie T-shirt fundraiser. We sold 554 T-shirts! A very special thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Bill Tilison, owners of Dave's Dinner for allowing us to use Dave's Diner to host the event and helping us sell t-shirts for Charlie. None of this would have been possible without them.
A great thanks to Mr. Brian Willard for his generosity and time put into the fundraiser. Thank you editor Jason Emerson of the Cazenovia Republican for advertising the fundraiser. Thank you to Mrs. Kristin MacDonald of Pennellville, N.Y., for donating the “Cheering for Charlie” bracelets. Thank you to Callaghan Dennison, seventh grader, for volunteering and making and donating paracord bracelets in the school colors and in Charlie's favorite colors. Thank you to fifth graders, Adam Thomson, Megan Lawton, Lily Sorbello, Samantha Combs and Maddie Young for volunteering at the fundraiser and making bracelets, bookmarks and pencil grips to sell.
And finally a special thank you to the community of Cazenovia for spending your time to help support the fundraiser for Charlie. We are sure the Thompson family is grateful to all of you!
