I just wanted to express my sincere appreciation and gratitude to Carroll County Memorial Hospital employees and the community for coming together and making the benefit for Portia Stangle such a huge success.

I first want to thank the Relevant Church members and Pastor Mendenhall for the generous use of their beautiful facilities. Without that we would not have had such a nice, big facility to put on such an event. To two members especially, Kimberly Puckett and Lori Bennett, thanks for all your help with prep and clean up. To Patsy Stewart, Beth Toombs and all the other members of the different Relay for Life teams that donated items for the Chinese Raffle and came and supported the event, thank you all.

Thanks to all the churches that donated money, items and came and showed their support. It did not go unnoticed. Thanks to such a great community that came out and showed your love and support for Portia, we appreciate it. Last but not least, thanks to all the CCMH employees who donated your time, bake goods, items for the raffle, and cooking utensils I want to say thanks. 

Thank you Dr. Perrenoud for buying a great portion of the food items and CCMH dietary department, thank you. A special thanks goes out to Sissy Jewell, Erin Brunck, Kim Cravens, Kristy Clark, the Leah and Kenneth Payton family, Judy Martin, Jeanine Perkins, Frankie and Allyson Aldridge, Tracy Stark, Johnny Miller, Kate Howard, Jean Pyles, Debbie Crase, Mike Kemper and Carol Bates who cooked, prepped and served food and assisted with the clean up. You made this all possible. To the venders that donated part of your proceeds to Portia thank you so much. To all the CCMH employees that donated your vacation and sick time to Portia, you are awesome.

The count as of Monday March 15, 2010 was $6,072.50 in funds raised. Thanks again to everyone!

If we have left someone out we apologize, that was not our intent to overlook anyone. The outpouring of generosity was so great we can’t even recall everyone.
