Alan's Column
THANK YOU everyone who attended our Inclusion Fusion auction on September 5th and those that donated auction items and who volunteered. Because of you our event was very successful and we raised over $100,000.  I also want to give a special shout out to CHAR Grinolds who chaired the fundraising committee and to our girl MARCI Nakano. Usually Marci has an assistant to help her with all the logistics  but this year she had to do it all by herself.  She's a superstar. Thank you Marci, you did an outstanding job. Please check out our list of our sponsors, volunteers and auction donors.
