Thanks from Boys & Girls Clubs

Posted: Wednesday, October 01, 2003

The Boys & Girls Clubs would like to thank everyone for the great success of the 16th annual auction. Approximately 250 people that gave generously to the kids of the peninsula attended the auction "Take a Chance on Kids."

A fund-raising event of this magnitude relies on the entire community for support from volunteers, donors to attendees and sponsors. The peninsula communities are the greatest, always opening their hearts and pocketbooks for a good cause. We do not take for granted the people who give so generously.

The donors who gave, we thank you. Without you, we wouldn't have an auction: A Memorable Experience B & B, 4-D Carpet One, AA Dan's Construction, ACS Wireless, Adamas Designs Jewelry, Affinity Salon, Agrium, Air liquide, America AirGas, Airport Equipment Rentals, Alaska Christian College, Alaskan Gift & Gallery, Alaska Horseman Trail Adventures, Alaska Hunting & Fishing Ventures, Alaska Legends Adventure Resort, Alaska Rivers Company, Alaska SeaLife Center, Alaska Trading and Loan Alaska, Wildland Adventures, Alaskan Suites, Alyeska Sales, Anchorage Symphony Orchestra, Arby's, Art Works, Artworks Alaska, Aspen Hotels of Alaska, AT-Woodworks;
