Benefit 2010: Thanks for your support!

Thanks to everyone who supported us at our benefit! We had a great time, and despite the heavy downpour at 6pm (just as the evening began), many people fought the rain and stopped by.

¡Gracias a todos los patrocinadores de nuestro evento.  Pasamos un buen rato, y a pesar de la lluvia fuerte, muchas personas asistieron.

Thanks to EVERYONE who helped!  We would like to send special thanks to Lauren G and Nikkels, the Spoilers DJ duo, who provided music, to Lindsay Merrill, who organized a great group of Americorps volunteers, and to our fantastic and recurring volunteers Paul Pedersen, Michelle Aippersbach and Joseph Edgar.

¡Gracias a TODOS los ayudantes. Quisiéramos agradecer a Lauren G y Nikkels el par de DJs por dar música al ambiente. También queremos dar muchas gracias a Lindsday Merrill, por organizar un grupo maravilloso de voluntarios de Americorps, y a los voluntarios fantásticos y leales, Paul Pedersen, Michelle Aippesbach y Joseph Edgar.
