Friends of ABC


with tribute to - Dick Hunt

Dear Friends of ABC,

On behalf of the Clinton A Better Chance program, we would like to extend a thank you to the hundreds of people who made our inaugural Extravaganza such a success. A special thank you to the individuals and businesses who donated gifts and services for our live and silent auctions (see the list below), and to the 300 people who attended the event. In addition to paying tribute to longtime ABC supporter Richard Hunt we were able to raise approximately 20% of the annual operating cost for our program. We’re also grateful to the Waterville Times for its coverage and editorial endorsing the event, to ACCESS FCU for promoting the event on its billboard, and to Dr. Steve Grimm and the band, auctioneer Keith Peavey and master of ceremonies Andy Bankert.

To those who have asked if we’ll do it again next year: How can we not?
