I think it's important to thank the community members after they've supported a fundraiser, to let them know how much they helped.
The Carson High School Baseball Hair Cut-A Thon brought to the team $2,200.
A special thank-you to the stylists who stayed there from 10 a.m. -5 p.m. cutting for free: Sharon McCulley, Renee McCulloch and owner of Attitudes Salon, Brandi Plattsmier. Also, I wanted to thank all the coaches and players who hung out all day helping, and meeting the people who came in to support their team.
I am always amazed how this town steps in for so many great causes.
Coming up, we have the annual Cracker Box/Adele's Golf Tournament - even the name sounds tasty.
Community Counseling Center has two of the city's finest gentlemen, Charlie Abowd and Jerry Massad, putting on the tournament.
It's not until May 6, but I am putting it in early because I know it sells out very quickly. So if you want to have a great time, while supporting the Community Counseling Center, this is the tournament.

WHEN: May 6
