Financially we also had a great day. The expenses of $133 were reimbursed to Lea and Shari for prizes and the website. The 50/50 raffle sold $210 worth of tickets and Gail won 1/2 = $105. We had another $30 in donations as well as an extra $8 for water. There remained $82 from the registration fees. A motion to donate the $225 additional funds raised to Renewal House of Canton was unanimously carried. The check will be in the mail Monday morning.
Many thanks to the organizers, "workers," and those who stepped up at the last minute to help at the event. A lot of work goes into the Derby — before the ducks drop into the water and after. And a huge thank you to our hostesses Jeanne and Sandi for providing us with such a great venue. Thank you Lea and Shari for creating the Grand Champion Award and a big hug of appreciation to Michele, our Plucky "Communications Director."
