The committee that planned the "Gifts of Love for Kathy" benefit would like to thank everyone who supported Kathy and Bill Peck by attending the event. It was great to see so many people whose lives have been touched by Kathy and Bill. We served dinner to well over 400 people.
As with every event it takes a team of people planning and working together to ensure success. The committee offers thanks to the Stanley Hose Fire Company of Sherman for allowing us to use the fire hall. Bill and Kathy have their roots in Sherman and then raised their family in Panama, so the communities came together to ensure the success of this benefit.
The help of so many people in planning the benefit, donating for the dinner, contributing baskets for the Chinese auction, giving items for the silent auction and special raffle, setting up, working during the evening, cleaning up, and, of course, contributing to the benefit account made this a very successful event.
Besides helping out an individual with medical expenses, it is the hope of the committee and Bill and Kathy Peck that we also helped raise awareness of the need for organ donors. Donating healthy organs to help others is a gift most of us can give and know that our selfless action will save a life.
Thanks to everyone involved with and supporting "Gifts of Love for Kathy."
