We do that every year.....there is a thread posted at the top 'Cash Donations'.  And this year was the most we've ever recieved counting BobW's thread.  :thumbsup:

WOW! That is absolutely spectacular!

Much appreciation goes to all of those who worked the long hours to organize this event and make this possible.

I don't even know who all works behind the scenes and coordinates this fundraiser, but I do know that it takes much dedication and labor to make it work as well as it does. To those that did, I say a BIG, THANK YOU! You are very much appreciated.

Nice work   :thumbsup:    

I only wish I would have started participating years ago.  Man did I have a blast this year.  I can't tell you how many times I told my wife, "it's for the kids".   :p     That was partially true, but it was also for this kid.  Love the stuff I got and love the feeling I got after it was all said and done.  Now next year for that TGMM Family of the Bow thing!(planned on doing it this year, but the snakey osage bow put me over the top)

$500,000 ?
bring it on I reckon !
Even in tough economic times the guys and girls of TG have pulled together for a great result this year so next year should be even better . And as its for the young ones the cause is necessary and timeless.....
I spent the other night in hospital with a loved one and seeing the  sick children  belts home the important lessons if life ...
Again...Bring on next year !

I love this place and the effort that everyone involved puts into it. Can't say enough about the people who organize this thing and especially the better halves who "have to put up with it". I know you guys couldn't do all you do with out the outstanding support of your families.

Also a big thank you to everyone who donated anything to the auction. Some put in big value items, others put in beautiful hand made items, etc, etc, etc. No matter what was donated it all comes from the heart and we couldn't reach this goal without everyones efforts.

Great job everyone.
