My husband and I would like to thank the VFW post and Ladies Auxiliary here in Fallbrook for a fundraiser they hosted for our grandson, Mason, on March 1. Mason was diagnosed with aplastic anemia in December and is awaiting a bone marrow transplant.
The Ladies Auxiliary made a fantastic dinner and many businesses in the community made donations to the cause for a wonderful silent auction and door prizes.
We would like to specifically thank each person who helped with this huge, successful event for a little boy who needs help, but space is limited in a letter to the editor.
Thank you to the VFW Post, Texanne Schaden (president of Ladies Auxiliary), Trish Harrison, Bonnie (BJ) Johnson, Dana and Cheyenne McCarthy, and the many other outstanding people who helped. Several local businesses showed immense generosity as well, for which we are grateful.
All the volunteers made the event go so smoothly, even with a downpour of rain!
We thank all of our friends who weathered the storm to come and all those people we had never met before who came out and contributed to the cause! It is very much appreciated.
The Village News did a wonderful article regarding Mason in February.
We thank and appreciate everyone and everything! So does Mason and his family.
