Thanks to everyone who attended the Jay Begg Reverse Raffle and to all those who volunteered to help make it a success. Congratulations to Moe and Tina Miron, the big winners of $5,000 cash!
I can’t mention everyone by name so not to leave someone out, I want to send a big THANK YOU to all that volunteered their time organizing the event, set up Wednesday and taking on a role on Thursday night, plus tear down and of course all of you who attended, as we saw some new faces this year.   
Also, the donations for auction were wonderful. It is so much appreciated and I’m sure Jay would be proud of the event and the money it raises to make Allen County a better place to live, work and play.
2 people I do want to mention with a special shout out. Katy Page & Cat Sarno. Katy stepped up to take on the event and Cat swooped in, in the final weeks to make the ticket sales happen (all 200 sold!!). A big thanks also goes out to Russ Decker and Nutrien for picking up the tab on the increase in the food cost.
The final numbers are being calculated and bills being paid and we will have a final number on how we did, soon. The club board will be discussing this event at its meeting on June 14th as we don’t want to wait until February/March like the current President (😊) did to start putting this event together.
Again, Thank You so very much for everyone involved, as it takes more time and effort than many may realize to put on an event like this.
