Blair’s Tree of Hope Kickball
Thank you to everyone who came out to join us on September 29, 2012 for our 5th Annual Kickball Tournament. We hope you all join us again next year! Many teams competed and we are thankful to all who participated. The winner for the non-competitive division was the Kickin’ Cousins and the winner for the competitive division was the Recreational Hazards. Second place went to the Summertime team.
Thank you to all of our volunteers throughout the day. We could not have made this event run so smoothly without your help. We hope you choose to donate more of your time with us in the future. Thank you to our board members and to our tournament director, Jodi Olson.
Thank you to all of Blair’s family and friends who traveled here to enjoy this day with us.
Thank you to everyone who purchased raffle tickets. We had a record high with 1,700 raffle tickets bought and 45 winners! The 1st place prize (Kindle Fire) was won by Mary F. The 2nd place prize (Healthy Heart Watch) was won by Judy W, and the 3rd place prize (signed Joe Mauer statue) was won by Rob K.
A special thank you needs to go out to Jennifer Slater who chose BTOH to receive $1,250 from Liberty Mutual Insurance Company.
