The steak supper to benefit Jerry Stanphill's family was a huge success. My thanks go out to all who purchased a steak dinner. There were 602 dinners purchased, and Ms. Betty Sewell, bless her heart, sold 185 tickets by herself.
Several people that I am aware of called me and said they would not be able to attend the supper and would like to make a donation to help Jerry. I thank you so much for your kind gifts and would love to name all of you, but fear I would unintentionally leave somebody out.
I would be remiss if I didn't thank Chief Rick Sewell and his staff, and the fine people in my office who gave of their time and talent to pull this off.
We are so very proud to present to Jerry and his family a check in the amount of $5,040.58.
