Letters to the Editor Nov. 7


The MeFiYi Foundation would like to thank all the participants and sponsors of the 2008 Big George Ventures Celebrity Golf Tournament on Oct. 10.

Your enthusiasm and braving the cold made this fundraiser an unforgettable experience. Our generous thank to our sponsors: Big George Ventures, NV Energy, Western Nevada Supply, Carson Valley Inn, Carson Valley Accounting, First Independent Bank of Nevada, Major League Baseball Players Alumni, Tamarack Junction Casino & Restaurant, Vitals, Inc., NFL Charities, The E.L. Cord Foundation, Robert Z. Hawkins Foundation, Robert R. Banks Foundation, Professional Athletes Foundation, and PAR Electrical Contractors. The proceeds from this event will benefit Douglas High School Athletics and the Boys & Girls Club of Carson Valley.

Also, we could not have had a successful event without the assistance from our outstanding volunteers: Beth Mitchell, Sonjia Lorntzen, Naomi Dimartino, Jodie Andersen and Tricia Carthen. Finally, special thanks to Genoa Lakes Golf Resort for hosting our golf tournament and banquet. It was fantastic.
