To The Daily Sun,
It is with humble gratitude that I am writing to thank so many people who supported me in representing The Santa Fund of the Greater Lakes Region at the sixth annual Dancing with the Stars.
What an amazing experience to compete and raise money with some of the community's most dedicated volunteers. I would first like to thank Laura Brusseau and her partner Ashley Halsey for organizing this huge event! A big congratulations to all of the dancers, who I can truly say deserve so much applause for getting out there, being brave and dancing in front of over 400 people. Thank you to my partner, Katie Laroche of Dancing Feet Studios for her time, energy, and patience. There have been so many people — friends, family, businesses who have supported me in this endeavor and I am beyond grateful for their kindness and generosity, and belief in this cause.
I would also like to give a special thank you to the incredible people in our downtown neighborhood for supporting me in this event: John Moriarty, MC Cycle, Daub's Cobbler Shop, All My Life Jewelers, Ian Raymond Photography, Grace Capital Church, Wayfarer Coffee Roasters, Greenlaw's Music, Patrick Wood.
There are no words to express my appreciation. I am honored to have been a part of an event that will help so many people in need. All donations big and small were so greatly appreciated by me and the gracious volunteers of the Santa Fund Board.
In a world full of so much sadness and tragedy, I am comforted knowing that we are doing what we can to make our tiny corner of it better for so many. "No act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted." — Aesop
With gratitude on behalf of myself, my loving family, my extended Santa Fund Family, and the children of the Lakes Region.
