Letter: Paul Heyob Benefit Committee thanks fundraiser participants, supporters

By on October 17, 2013

We want to take this opportunity to thank the numerous family, friends and businesses and the community for the outpouring of support for Paul Heyob.

Some donated silent auction items or raffle items. Some were instrumental in planning, organizing and assisting on the day of the benefit. Some traveled to the event and spent their hard-earned money to help Paul through this cancer fight. Some couldn’t attend, and instead offered monetary donations or other items to help raise money. Some went out their way to sell raffle tickets.

Many of you remembered Paul in prayer and/or sent a note of support. Regardless of who you are or what your contribution was, you helped make the benefit a huge success. We exceeded our expectations, raising approximately $30,000. This money will be used to offset the medical costs of Paul’s battle with cancer.

We are forever grateful for all of you, and the help and support you have given to us and Paul. It has been a very humbling experience for all of us. God bless each and every one of you.
