St Jude Auction Total!! Great Job TGers!
« on: July 26, 2008, 09:40:00 AM »
Well you all did a wonderful job again for this years Auction!! I sure thought we were going to break that magic 100K mark but it just wasn't meant to be this year.

I got the final tally from St Jude a couple days ago and our paypal total had actually went down. Investigation turned up that when E-checks were used thru PP they were posted as the payment was made and again when the check cleared. This upped the numbers around $4000 more than it actually was... We're still working the bugs out as we are the Pioneers with this for St Jude. Overall it has gone pretty well and we can be very pround of our great effort!!

Chuck may come up with a few bucks more as he still has a some shirts left if you want one but as of now the Grand Total raised for "08" by this great bunch of Trad Gang Members is $94,781.37!!!

This is just one of many reasons why I am proud to be part of the traditional archery group. What an awesome bunch of people. I know some gave a lot that stretched them, but what a wonderful cause.  God Bless the donors, the buyers and especially the children!

The pleasure wasn't all in the giving. We just finished up the lobsters donated by Cecil Newcomb. Sorry Marty!
The difference between the warm water shellfish we eat and the cold water stuff you yankees get is unbelievable!
That kinda stuff makes it easier to donate the money for sure!
