Letters to the Editor

Thanks for promoting cure for diabetes family fun day Dear Editor, Thanks again for the support you are giving to promote my family fun day. I know that my event would not be as successful if generous groups like the Squire did not help me. I did notice a correction opportunity to the article this week. The article described the cost of a “poker hand” as a minimum donation of $25. The actual cost on the day of the event of a single hand is only $10 and a family pack which you describe is $30 (which include 4 poker hands and the various gift certificates). The $25 donation described in the flyer was for pre-registration via the web site which includes a gift to the participant of a t-shirt and one additional poker hand on the day of the event. I apologize for any confusion I created by having so many options for donation. As always, I am trying to create a win-win for my charity and the participants. I was blown away to see the picture of Scott and I on the front page this week and feel blessed to have a community of people like yourself to help me make a contribution to finding a cure for diabetes!
