We had the PAWS SUPER BOWL DRAWING yesterday. The big winner of the Flat Screen TV and Blu-Ray Player was RODNEY H. of Tyronza, Arkansas. Rodney had never won anything in his life he said (even though he had entered many drawings and contests). He is a very deserving person who devotes his life to working with adults with developmental disabilities.

The top ticket sellers were Kelly Albrecht of St. Louis, MO, and Chamblee Witherspoon (her rescued dog, Charlie, helped tremendously) of Marion, AR (both were sponsors as well in addition to the Brett Burris Family). We couldn't have done this without you three! Beth R. of Ripon, WI and Julie C. of Collierville, TN, were close runner-ups in the number of tickets sold so thank you so much for your effort!

We also had small "door prizes" to various restaurant estabilishments. Lucky winners include: Allen D. of West Memphis, AR, Candace W. of Marked Tree, AR, Mickey T. of Marion, AR, Jean W. of Marion, AR, Lisa Carpenter of ??? (please contact us- your phone number is not working), Joe B. of Earle, AR, Cindy S. of Eureka, MO, Andy F. of Ballwin, MO, Ruth M. of O'Fallon, MO, and JoAnn H. of Grover, MO.

THANK YOU ALL for your time and your generosity in making this a success. We raised enough money to pay our monthly medical bills (which total over $1300 a month). If you have an idea of another fundraiser, please let us know as we have a continual need for financial support in order to save lives.

A special thanks to Aaron at HHGREGG Appliances and Electronics store in Memphis, TN, who gave us a fantastic deal on the TV and Blu-Ray Player! We would also like to thank our local Applebee's and Colton's Steakhouse for providing gift certificates for some of the door prizes.
