Your view: Event was a success

Wednesday, August 23, 2006

We would like to thank everyone that made the third Annual Bluegrass Festival for UCAN this weekend at The Lake Wappapello Outdoor Theatre a huge success.

Those of you that donated items for the auctions and concessions, we certainly appreciate your generosity. Special thanks goes to Brown Construction for the trailer and Hazel Mann for the beautiful quilt she cross-

stitched that were the raffle items and to Bud Shell Ford for the Explorer that was donated for the auction. Special appreciation goes to Billy and Robin Huey for conducting the auctions and to the Bluegrass bands that performed at the festival.

Thanks to you that attended the festival and gave so willingly, over $21,000 was raised for UCAN. The United Cancer Assistance Network provides assistance free of charge for cancer patients in a nine-county area. Many people will benefit from your generosity, as 100 percent of the money contributed will help patients with their financial needs.

We look forward to next year's festival and invite anyone interested in being a part of the festival and fund raising for UCAN to please contact us for more information.

Thanks again,

Shelley and Brian McClintock
