Jan, I don't think we'd be doing this year after year if all our hard work isn't appreciated. People who have attended the event for the first time are overwhelmed with the number of people who attend. As far as doing the personal thank you notes, that's what keeps the businesses donating year after year. We have had a couple businesses tell us they quit donating to everyone who asks because they never get a thank you and have mentioned our thank you notes. I believe if you ask someone to give you money or raffle prizes you should show your appreciation. We even get businesses donating to us who always turn down others.
