We especially thank all the golfers for supporting this fundraiser ad all the children that it helps at Christmas. To put a smile on an unknown child’s face on Christmas meant so much to Staci. The birth of Jesus, being with family, and helping needy kids was Staci’s Christmas.

A heart filled thanks goes to Staci’s brother Dusty and sister-in-law Ashley. They are carrying on what Staci started. We are so proud of them as Staci would be.

A sincere thank you goes to Capt. Brian Strait for traveling from San Diego, Calif., to participate in and contribute to this event. Also to Brian’s sister Carma Litton who made a quilt that is covered with hearts to be offered in the raffle to help raise more money for Staci’s cause.

We cannot thank you all enough. your thoughtfulness and consideration is such a blessing to our family. During this Christmas season, pause for a moment and think about the smile you helped put on a child’s face and feel the love.

We especially want to thank the good Lord and ask Him to continue to bless this event. With the Lord’s help and yours, we will be able to continue to help the needy children in our area.

May you all have a blessed holiday season and on behalf of all the kids who will benefit from this fundraiser, THANK YOU!

God Bless,
