Charity Cup Champions City of Greenville (l-r Steve Willman, Curt Garrison, Chad Henry, and Choice One’s Wes Goubeaux)
Great balls of fire! This past Wednesday, March 28, was the Top Gun-themed Sidney area Charity Cup, and once again our friends are the “best of the best” when it comes to helping us raise funds, have a good time, and compete in a dogfight of a bucket ball tournament.
As usual, the night was filled with friends, fun, and tomfoolery. Our resident Maverick and Goose, Choice One’s Wes Wolters and Kyle Siegrist, respectively, thrilled the crowd with their Navy pilot bravery and charm (and as noted by Josh in the quote, Wes’s team beat Kyle’s). Tennis balls soared like F-14s towards their targets… or at least towards the general vicinity of their targets. And at the end of the night, the City of Greenville won the tournament, beating a solid team from the Village of Anna in the final game, but in reality, the MVDSA and several soldiers with local ties were the ones that really came out on top.
We are once again blown away by the amazing generosity of our friends. Thanks to your bigheartedness, we raised $5,000 for the MVDSA’s annual family picnic at Young’s Jersey Dairy*, and send 11 boxes to support US soldiers and their families (for a total of $7,330.00 raised!). THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for attending and participating in the event, and for supporting such wonderful causes. For that, you can be our wingmen anytime.
*Save the date–07/21/18–if you’d like to attend this MVDSA’s family picnic–you’re all invited!
