Kudos & Kindness

To the editor:

As progress continues and expenses mount in the acquisition of our new building, we have received overwhelming support from the community. The board of directors of Sierra Recovery Center would like to express its profound thanks to the following people who generously donated in response to our mailer:

First and most especially to former board member Gene Rasmussen, who continues to exhibit a stupendous level of support in his role as alumni of the board.

His initial donation of $5,000 was the official kick-off for our fund-raising campaign and boosted morale at a time when we sorely needed it.

Thanks also to Bank of the West for their contribution of $2,500, and to Wave Lee Stonerock of Saugus, Calif., for the donation of $1500.

We also received non-monetary contributions from Gabriel Hydrick Landscape Design for the landscape design and irrigation plan at our new home; from Lily’s Tire Service for a front-end alignment and two tire balances for the van we use to transport clients; and from Lonnie Wetterer, a $50 gift certificate to House of Ski.

In addition, we received cash contributions from the following: Harry Segal, David Brockhage, Annette Watkins-McIntyre, Stephani Seals, Paul and Judy Bruso, Barbara Bauer Childs, Barbara Gerland, Charles McDermid, Glenn C. Miller, Dave and Vee Gay, Keith Klein, Jackie Williams, Ron Williams, Frances Carreau, William Henderson, Nancy Smyth, John Weidman, Timothy Holcomb, Jeff Tillman, Joan Walthall, Jo Anne and Gary Jones, Bobbi Cole, Eric and Nancy Schafer, Carl Fair, Lou Fiori, Martin Paradzinski, Gayle Erbe-Hamlin, Levon Tourvan, Bill Ladd, Mike Fedor, AAA Roofing, Frederick Wenck, Monique McIntyre, Borg and Night Framing, Deb Howard, Dianne Salzenstein, Davey Paiva, Ed and Marsha Slater, Joann Conner, Brian Cassidy, Richard Reid, Judy Cuthbertson, Dan Tepper, Carol and Richard Elder, Paul Genasci, Stephen and Cynthia Preston, Nick Ashmore, Rachelle Nicolle, Carl Ribaudo, Michael Riley, Susan and Stephen Ward, Laub and Laub, Marshall Triggs, Susanne Hoy, James and Pam Beattie.

These contributions will all go toward the acquisition and remodeling of our new building, which will house all our out-patient services and our transitional living homes.

Burger night was a success

To the editor:

A big thank you goes to Paul and Judy Bruso and their employees, Carlos, Estele, Betsy, Roger and Michele, for the successful fund-raiser at their restaurant.

The burgers, shakes and fries were enjoy by all who attended. The bake sale had a variety of desserts to take home. Thank you also to Bonanza Produce, Crystal Dairy and Farmers’ Brothers.

We appreciate all those who support our fund-raisers and our program.
