I am writing this letter to thank the community for their support and fundraising at Dinner with Theresa. I have lived in Kingman for 30 years and I am blessed to have so many people care about my children and myself. The dinner was a great success and resulted in such a blessing to me. I had the time of my life on top of the reason why we were all there. I looked around the room and saw so many people that I love and admire greatly. Thank you to them for buying tickets and coming out for a beautiful evening. There were people who purchased tickets and were not able to make it; I send out a lot of love and gratefulness to you.
I would like to thank Dora Manly from Dora's Beale Street Deli and her staff. She worked really hard and on a very busy schedule to cater a wonderful meal. Dora donates her time and energy for this community and I'm truly grateful she wanted to help me.
I want to thank the Stetson Winery for allowing the event to be held at such a beautiful place. Everyone enjoyed the wine and scenery. If you have not been there and have an opportunity, you must go.
I want to thank Tammi Doughty and family for their donations for the event. Tammi was the person who spearheaded this whole idea. She is a busy mom and took on this idea and ran with it. She is a very generous and special person.
I would like to thank Dave and Candice Huerta for all their work helping to sell tickets and organizing this event. D.J. extraordinaire Gene Stafford with Ground Zero Party donated his time and gave us the gift of music. He does a wonderful job. I was deeply touched and so grateful for his donation.
I would like to list the people who stepped up to donate items for auction, raffle, or just their time: Dreams and Rainbows, Kevin and Stephanie Wilkerson, Diamond Brothers, Larry and Sharon Butler, Dan and Jean Bishop, Julie and Jeff Boyett (from the U.S. Embassy), Scissorhands-Shari Haller, Dallas Dudley Massage, Susan Stafford-Prime Rib Room dinner for two, Jennifer Sochoci, Debbie McKee, Debbie Terlesky, Brenda Schritter, Manzanita Baptist Church, R&J Arizona Designs and the Kingman Daily Miner.
This is an evening I will never forget. I'm so honored that my friends wanted to do this for me. It is something I will never forget. Thank you so much.
