Cancer Alliance gets help from community

November 10, 2012
Daily Press

This week's bouquets go to:

From the Delta County Cancer Alliance Board of Directors:

"We send a big thank you out to Holy Name seventh and eighth grade football team for their fundraiser at their last game wearing pink gear. Tackle for the Cure Football raffle at the game raised $348 to help cancer patients in Delta County. Shout out to Rapid River Rockets as they came out on the field wearing pink gear also and all looked great. Penny Erickson, mom of Brandon, one of the players, collected donations along with other moms that worked very hard on a very cold night. Thanks to all."

From the Delta County Cancer Alliance Board of Directors:

"We would like to thank three generous and special ladies that make lap quilts for our office to give to cancer patients. They have made quilts for the last three years. They are quilted by Bernice Haase of West Bend, Wis., sewn and tied by Kay Mertz of Saginaw, Mich., and bunting from Marie Peterson of Escanaba. We appreciate your help."

From Bays De Noc Gobblers (N.W.T.F.):

"We would like to send a huge thank you to Judy - Cat DeGrand and the entire staff at Cat Man Do's, The Rogers Bros., Bob Gasparick, Scotty Carlson, The Lark Bros., and everyone who volunteered and supported our "Wheelin Sportsmen" fundraiser Sept. 15 at Cat Man Do's, which was a great success."

From Kay Johnson of Escanaba:

"Bouquets to the City Public Works Department for their hard work cleaning up all the leaves, especially after our windy week. Thank you for your extra efforts."

From Cheryl Ohman and Roger Charbonneau, co-chairs of the 10th annual Escanaba Rotary Wine Tasting, which took place last weekend at the Island Resort and Convention Center:

"On behalf of the Rotary Club of Escanaba, we'd like to thank everyone who played a role in Vino at the Casino.

"A sell-out crowd once again enjoyed fine wine and fine company as they came together to help area children who face difficult challenges.

"We'd like to thank our wine sponsor, Bink's Wine and Beverages, the Island Resort, and all their hard workers. They are both first-class organizations that constantly do much to help our communities.

"Our club is a small one with big hearts. Many of our club members work countless hours both before and during the event with a goal of insuring all 400 attendees have a very enjoyable time. Once again it was mission accomplished.

"Proceeds from the benefit help a variety of Rotary services, including our annual Christmas party for students at the ISD Learning Center in Escanaba, scholarships for Bay College students with special challenges, the Rotary Youth Exchange Program and, most notably, the summer day camp at Rotary Camp Harstad in Ford River for children with special needs."

"Thanks to everyone who helped and everyone who attended. We're already looking forward to next year's event, which is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 2. We hope you are, too."

From Janet Lindstrom:

"Well done Bay College Drama Department. Avenue Q was a delight! Your skills at handling the puppets was terrific. It was such a fun evening."
