Kiwanis say thanks

Editor:

On behalf of the Kiwanis Club of Zane Grey Country, I want to express our sincere appreciation to our community and our members for their support of the 2019 Kiwanis Auction for Youth dinner.

Our event raised over $12,000 for scholarships and other youth-centered programs throughout the year.

As you can imagine, it takes tremendous effort on the part of our members to produce this event and to gather donations from our local businesses and beyond. We cannot express our appreciation enough to our members for all their efforts and to our local businesses and individuals for their donations.

We have a very generous business community and are grateful for their support year after year.

Huge thanks to our Gold Sponsors: Edward Jones Investments, Kevin Dick Investments and Culver’s; and our Silver Sponsors: St Paul’s Episcopal Church, Unity Church of Payson, Crabdree Insurance, American Pacific Mortgage, Payson Premier Dental, and Pioneer Title Agency.

Our thanks also to our table sponsors: Paul Gonnerman, Calvary Church, and Kiwanis of Tonto Basin.

Special thanks to: Jeremy Ulmer (Chasin’ A Dream Outfitters) and Mick Greer for their expertise and special handling of the firearm auction items.

Finally, our thanks go out to everyone who attended the event and participated in the auction. Once again we are overwhelmed by our community’s support and generosity.
