Pints for Polio Results

Congratulations to Joel Thomas and Chris Raven for an outstanding event!  244 people signed up in total (vs. 180 last year), with gross proceeds around $12,000.  Net should be about $10,000.  With the 2 to 1 match from the Bill & Melinda Gates foundation, that means a contribution to Polio Plus of about $30,000!

Wine Raffle Winners

Club member Liz Euland won the 100+ instant wine cellar!

Other winners of a case of wine were:  Tom Collier (ticket sold by Chris Conant); Patricia Edge (ticket sold by Peggy Carey); Mark and Karen Stanard; Rebecca Kaufman; Pat Cougill; Windy Adoretti (ticket sold by Becky Johnson); Bailey (ticket sold by ???); and Vicky Malakoff.
