Kudos & Kindness
Hundreds attended benefit
Wagging tails and giant purrs to all who supported the Mumbo Gumbo Angora Fire Animal Relief Benefit Concert.
More than 300 guests, eight corporate sponsors, 12 in-kind donors, and 30 volunteers made the event a success, netting more than $3,500.
The proceeds fund care for injured and displaced pets as well as additional rescue equipment for the Emergency Response Partnership of El Dorado County Animal Control-Tahoe and the Lake Tahoe Humane Society and S.P.C.A.
After sloppy kisses to Mumbo Gumbo, special licks go to John and Barbara Hodgson, East Slope/William Tremaine Construction, Midkoff and Associates, Ken and Selina Kostelnik, Michael Rohrer Construction, Thomas Haen Construction, John Dalton Construction, Architect Brian Shinault, producer Eric Shinault of Casper G.

Magic show delighted children
All of us at the Family Resource Center would like to extend our gratitude to Tony Clark and The Horizon and their staff for their wonderful magic show they performed for 175 children in our town.
Most of these children have not had the luxury of seeing a magic show, with lunch and prizes. Tony never forgets the children in our community and the happiness that he brings to them is heartwarming.
People like him make me believe in one of the deepest secrets of life which is: all that is really worth doing is what we do for others. With sincere gratitude,
Delicia Spees, executive director
