Dime Pitch Booth Report From Wayne Simmons
The Sunfield SPY’s Dime Pitch Booth event was a great success at last weekend’s Sunfield Farmers Picnic. Last year, mainly due to COVID, we had to close down early due to lack of volunteer help to run the booth. By comparison, this year we had a tremendous turnout of volunteers, but nonetheless we still had to shut down a little early again because we had so many players and winners throughout the day that we actually ran out of glassware!!!
Without question, this year’s success is attributed to the many volunteers that helped setup and operate this year’s event. My heart felt ‘Thank You’ goes out to:
And, we would be remiss not to mention and once again thank the many donors of glassware and stuffed animals that creates our ability to run this fund-raiser successfully. Thank you all again for helping us help kids!
Grand Prize winners and photos with details will be published as soon as possible.
