The Sandoval Fun 4 All wants to thank you, our community. It was a last minute thing, but every effort was put into this mini-concert together in 10 weeks. We had people come out of everywhere trying to help.

Thank you to all the musicians that gave their time and talent in Lonnie’s memory!

A lot of people were able to have the closure they needed. This event was tender, fun, peaceful and even festive. Everyone enjoyed someone they had never met.

We believe this event did reach, even beyond Mrs. Sandoval’s expectations.

Tina, thank you for allowing our family to reach out and touch our community, for opening areas of need for other people in our lovely valley.

Thank you to our sponsors, volunteers and businesses who helped.

I want to give a big thank you to the local businesses for donating items to a silent auction that was held on Friday, Sept 10.

My name is Tresa Berner and my partner is Haydn Holgate. We are seniors at RHS and for our Senior Seminar we are doing fundraisers through out the school year to help Quincy Snyder who was injured in an accident and was left in a wheelchair. Quincy is making incredible progress and we are trying to raise money to help her go to a rehabilitation facility back East. Here is a list of the businesses and people in Rifle that contributed:

The Creekbend Bistro, RPM (Rifle Performance MotorSports), The Hampton Inn, The Z Salon, Kelly’s Aloha Spa, Trendz clothing and Stephanie Heald (Girls Basketball coach).

We also had a fundraiser at the Homecoming game. We made cotton candy and the proceeds also went to Quincy’s fund. We would like to thank Garfield Re-2 Transportation for the use of the cotton candy machine, Kelly Iniguez for showing Haydn and myself how to use the machine, and our parents for helping us so we could watch some of the Homecoming game.
