Dinner & Auction
The Making of a Warrior
The dinner and auction on Saturday evening, March 17 2007 at Persimmons Country Club was a success!
About 175 guests enjoyed a fun evening:
- A video tribute to Jeff titled "The Making of a Warrior" was shown. The video featured video clips of Jeff playing sports during his days at Corbett High School and rememberances from some of Jeff's coaches.
- There was a special quilt presentation made to Pat Lucas by Kaye Hansen of the Home of the Brave Project.
- The Grammy Award nominee Gino Vannelli performed a song title "None so Beautiful as the brave." We were honored to have Mr. Vannelli with us.
- Jim Anderson and Mike Button auctioneered a highly successful live auction.
A total of $23,000 was raised for the Jeff Lucas Memorial Fund. This brings the total funds raised up to about $103,000!
