March 18, 2011 |

Here’s a big “howdy” and thank you to the community from Soroptimist International of Davis.  Our 2011 “Texas Hold ‘Em and More” event was a great success: The 250 participants certainly enjoyed a fun evening, and our club raised about $14,000 to benefit emancipated foster youths and our Soroptimist community works.

We couldn’t do this event without the help of our sponsors. Thank you to our Diamond Sponsors: John & Celeste Cron; John & Katherine Hess; Davis Waste Removal; Foley Jones & Associates, LLC; John A. Baxter, M.D.; Lisa Hanks Baxter, L.C.S.W.; Strelitzia Flower Co.; and Dr. Richard Kennedy, DDS.

Thank you also to our Heart Sponsors: Woodstock’s Pizza; Lea Rosenberg’s Shorty P.Q. Dress Boutique; Carolyn & Dean Cliver; Ace Hardware; Hallmark Inn; LJB Career Consulting; Yocha Dehe Golf Club; Jim Provenza, Yolo County supervisor.

And much thanks to our Spade Sponsors: Nugget Markets; Fleet Feet Sports Davis; Curves West Davis; Spa Central; Davis Voice; Wayne Schrader Optometrist Inc.; Brooks Painting Inc.; Tandem Properties; Technology Sciences Group Inc.; Floor Coverings International; Don Saylor, Yolo County supervisor; state Sen. Lois Wolk; The Davis Graduate; HAIR by Terri Whitaker; Coldwell Banker-Doug Arnold Real Estate Inc.

And a tip of the hat to our Table Sponsors: Fagan Financial Planners; Howard T. Shempp, D.D.S.; Melissa Daley; and Avid Reader.

Our celebrity dealers added much zest to the evening and we thank them: Ruth Asmundson, Janet Berry, Bob Bowen, Gina Daleiden, Kari Fry, Sue Greenwald, Kim Kinnee, Diane Parro, Tanya Perez, Nancy Peterson, Kemble Pope, Bill Pride, Jim Provenza, Sherry and Ted Puntillo, Craig Reynolds, Don Saylor, Christi Skibbins, Stephen Souza, Rochelle Swanson, Cass Sylvia, Terrell Thomas and Dan Wolk. Also, thank you to The Davis Enterprise for its excellent coverage leading up to the event.

And finally, THANK YOU to the hard-working women of Soroptimist International of Davis. You did it again! Save the date for next year’s Texas Hold ‘Em event: Feb. 25.
