weather, our February 24th event at the Blue
Martini, International Plaza,
was a great success. Fifty ticket holders braved
the storm. They were joined by Blue Martini
patrons who learned about Wheels of Success that
evening, doubling participation in the fun.
Door prizes were plentiful, including
25 chances for items valued under $100. We would like
to thank the following contributors of raffle prizes:
Doug Frain, Diversified Maintenance--2
Bucs Suite tickets
Caught up in the excitement of both the auction
and the cause, Blue Martini patron Doug Frain,
of Diversified Maintenance,
donated two of his Bucs Suite tickets for any
game next season. The $850 brought in by this
impromptu donation made up for the loss of
participation caused by the downpour of rain.
We would like to acknowledge Cox Feivelson's donation of two
beautiful, framed prints valued at $300 each. We were unable to auction the
prints because we didn't want to risk carrying them through the rain, but we
will be using them to raise funds at our next event.
This event's success, despite the storm has brought requests for a repeat performance.
We are planning to hold this, at the Blue Martini, on April 20th, so watch
for details on our site!
Thanks especially to our main sponsor of the evening, Jaguar
of Tampa, who donated the grand prize--a Jaguar
X Type for the weekend. This was won by a ticket holder from Spheris, a company
who once again came with a table of people and a corporate donation. We thank Spheris for
their unwavering support and enthusiasm as an official corporate sponsor.
