Kingman Letters: Thanks to all who made the KCCU Arts & Crafts Fair possible

JC AMBERLYN/Miner<br /><br /><!-- 1upcrlf2 -->Vendors at the Kingman Cancer Care Unit's 36th annual Arts and Crafts Fair sold a variety of arts, crafts, foods, and other gifts just in time for the holidays. The event helped raise funds to support the non-profit, 100-percent volunteer organization that assists local residents diagnosed with cancer. This includes help with travel, medication, housing and other expenses. In 2011, the KCCU assisted over 94 adults and children. Here, Carole Gallagher sets up a display Saturday morning for her business, "Lady Carole's Glass Block Nightlights and Crocheted Necklaces."<br /><br /><!-- 1upcrlf2 -->

As chair of the publicity for the Kingman Cancer Care Unit, I would like to thank all the volunteers who personally handed out posters and flyers for the Kingman Cancer Care Unit's 36th Annual Arts and Crafts Fair and to Lisa Mallory for contacting the news media and businesses to advertise for the Fair.

A big thank you to the Kingman Daily Miner, The Standard, KGMN Radio, Chambers Realty and Diamond Brothers for your support and help to get the word out on the Fair.

Penny White, as chair of this event, did a wonderful job securing original, creative and crafty vendors for this event. The weather was cooperative and we appreciate the community turning out and supporting this "once-a-year event" which makes a big contribution to our local cancer patients. Without the support of our community and businesses, we would not be able to help the many patients and their families who have been touched by cancer. The KCCU volunteers who help every year and throughout the year are the "angels" we cherish for their dedicated service to the KCCU, for without them, we could not help over 100 patients we have had this past year. Thank you one and all.
