Letter: Thank you for coming together to help Illinois tornado victims

By on April 19, 2012

Wow! What can I say but thank you. I would like to thank everyone who came out in support of our Tornado Relief Fundraiser at Hill’s Country Store a couple of weeks ago. We raised over $2,150.

Each family received their check and box of Easter presents for their children in time for Easter. They were overwhelmed by our generosity. Thank you especially to everyone who donated baked goods and purchased raffle tickets.

I especially want to thank Dave Kovach and the Kaneville Volunteer Fire Department for allowing us to sell tickets at the egg hunt, Lee Newtson for letting us know about the families in need, and especially my mom Pat and my brother Tyler for helping me organize and run the event.

A very special thank you to all of our very generous sponsors: Northside Pub, Russell Automotive, Bob Jass Chevrolet, Hill’s Country Store, Ream’s Elburn Market, American Bank and Trust, Old Second Bank, Panera, Rich’s Auto Service, Sam’s Club in Batavia, Schmidt’s Towne Tap, Oberweis, Bootleggers Pizza, Handmade Jewelry By Mary Niceley, Paisano’s Pizza, Blackberry Inn, The Swissotel in Chicago, and to our numerous anonymous donors. Thank you once again for supporting the Lane and Wynn families of Ridgway and Harrisburg, Ill. They will be forever grateful to all of us.
