The Yolo Chapter of the California Youth Connection would like to thank Yolo County for its support of our recent fall fundraiser on Oct. 21 at the Odd Fellows Hall in downtown Davis.
This event wouldn’t have happened without the Rebekah Lodge, who contributed the location, food and support. Special acknowledgement must go to Barb and John Geisler, who produced an incredible dinner! Barb also acted as our mentor, providing enthusiasm, guidance and a healthy dose of practicality.
Dodie Black helped us obtain items for our auction and raffle, assisted with set-up logistics, and, along with Dave Rosenberg, was involved during the event itself. Lea Rosenberg also donated to our auction, and offered wonderful advice as we prepared.
Additionally, we extend our appreciation to Debbie Davis from The Davis Enterprise, writer Anne Ternus-Bellamy and photographer Fred Gladdis for finding our event newsworthy.
We are extremely grateful to the following individuals and businesses who contributed to our fundraiser:
Applebee’s, B&L Bike Shop, Bistro 33, Boheme, Heidi and Bryan Brahms, CASA, Cable Car Wash, Clarksburg Winery, Ron Clement, Davis Food Co-op, Peggy and Emanuel Epstein, Fleet Feet, Freewheeler, Joan and Wes Gerriets, Patty and John Goss, Valeri Garcia and Guardian Scholars Program of UC Davis, Illusions, Irongate Mortorcycle and Helmet Shop, Marilyn and Charles Judson, Helen DeAngelo and Ruth Ann Kinsella, Miner’s Leap Winery and Mishka’s Café.
