Bill Anderson benefit deserves many thank-yousWords cannot express the gratitude and appreciation to all who had a part in making the Bill Anderson benefit a reality, and what an extraordinary benefit it was.
Thank you to the El Zagal Shrine, Shiloh Lodge, all F-M Masonic Bodies, Ritualistic Divan and Shrine Units, Eastern Star, Great Western Exchange Club, Messiah Lutheran Church, Schumacher and Downtown Goodyear stores, North High Alumni, Nash Finch, Salad Makers, raffle and silent auction committee, finance committee, family, friends and individuals for all your hard work, endless hours and sacrificing your personal time to make this benefit possible.
Heartfelt thanks to all who generously contributed in the form of donations, Thrivent Financial and Dakota Medical Foundation for the matching funds, the fantastic raffle and auction merchandise, the delicious baked goods, and the many wonderful volunteers who sold raffle tickets, helped with the benefit setup, served food and cashiered, and to all those who came and participated in the auction.
This was an incredible benefit organized by incredible people. Bill would have been touched beyond words, as our family was. We are truly in debt to all who have reached out to our family in every form of support that has come our way during Bill’s fight with cancer and upon his passing.
Thank you, and may God’s blessing be poured out to each of you for your caring hearts.
