Wow!  Yesterday’s event was great, and we really appreciate the outpouring of support shown to assist the Bradford family!  We’re still working on counting everything up from the PC raffle, silent auction, bake sale, etc. – as well as all the extra donations made, but it’s clear we raised thousands of dollars for the Courtney and Jasmine Bradford Memorial Fund!  All three of Courtney’s siblings, and other family, were here all day and everybody had a great time.

By far the biggest hit of the event was the computer system raffle – I’m guessing we sold at least a thousand tickets for that alone!  And at 7:00PM last night, this is the ticket that was pulled out of the bin:


Congratulations to Jason, who’s already been contacted and is stoked to get his new computer system!

Naturally, the Vikings tickets and Wild tickets were big draws at the silent auction, but there was SO much other cool stuff it kind of boggled the mind!  The generous support of dozens of area businesses, organizations, and large numbers of private donors was just awesome.

Finally, thanks to all the volunteers who helped us post flyers, collect donations, sell tickets, and work the event all day long yesterday.  A whole bunch of people spent an awful lot of their time and effort making this event a smashing success, and it is greatly appreciated!
