To the editor:
Thank you to the community for making CazCares Casino Night a fantastic success. Our goal was to raise money for our fresh produce offering in the food pantry. After an energetic, fun filled evening with 230 people in attendance, delicious food, a fabulous selection of wine and a chance to win exciting prizes, we are pleased to report that CazCares raised over $18,000. This money will be used to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables for the 160 families who receive groceries from our program each month. It is clear from this generous support that many people hold CazCares close at heart.
We wish to acknowledge the commitment from local businesses, corporate and individual sponsors, our board of directors and our team of volunteers. Special thanks to Brittnee at the Hampton Inn for making everything run smoothly and to Jason Emerson and Lori Lewis from Eagle News for media support.
