This evening we welcomed a number of individuals from Vernon who provided invaluable assistance with last Fall's fundraiser for one of our members, Jim Dizenzo. Jim had been diagnosed with a terrible lung condition that necessitated his receiving a double lung transplant. While insurance, thankfully, covered much of the expense, as with anything like this, because of the time required for recuperation, there are many personal expenses not covered by medical insurance. The fundraiser provided much needed financial assistance for Jim and his family so he could come back strong as ever.

Pam Reed volunteered her time out of friendship with Jim and his family. Bill Maggeri, a colleague from BNI, offered his services as DJ for the fundraiser. Patty Guinta of Brookside Florist, offered her services. Jeannie Buffalino, with the PAL, also helped with the hosting of the event. And, lastly, Craig English and Mark Megan of Mac & Lindy's Liquors, helped with the beverages.

We were grateful to be able to present awards to almost all the contributors in person this evening.

This past weekend was the Fundraiser for Zachary Decker, the 4-year old from Hamburg who is suffering with leukemia. The fundraiser was held at Tree City Mini Golf at Mountain Creek. The Club helped by sponsoring the Tricky Tray. All in all, the day raised over $4000 for Zachary to help defray the costs of his ongoing chemotherapy.

Below are some additional photos from the event. Thanks to Theresa for representing the Club and to Martin for his donation of Tricky Tray items. Also in attendance was Sally, in her role as mayor. All in all, a good day for Vernon and the Club.
