A heartfelt huge thank you to all who attended and made the benefit a success this past Saturday. We are grateful for everyone who showed up, volunteered, and offered support, financially or otherwise. There is a long list of people/organizations that deserve recognition for their efforts and participation. I know most of you know exactly who you are and the role you played, so please forgive me for not individually naming you, especially those of you that I hold near and dear. Please know you made such a difference in our time of need, and there is nothing words can express that could wholly represent our gratitude.
Here is the laundry list who deserve recognition for their time and efforts, in no particular order:
Hugo American Legion for allowing our use of their facility Hugo Fire Department for volunteering their time and truck, as well as parking in their west lot
Wildwood Lions for their generous marketing, donation, volunteering of information, and time
Washington County Sheriff’s office for providing a K9 officer (and to the officer, his partner, and his family – many thanks!)
Hugo Beyond the Yellow Ribbon for their dedicated volunteers, food, insights, and food service
Mahtomedi Beyond the Yellow Ribbon for donating their time at the event and their grassroots efforts in the local Mahtomedi community
