I was moved by the reactions in the pub (there were some tears) when I unveiled the check showing a revised total of (drumroll please…):
We received a couple of late donations AFTER we had the check printed, which was a wonderful surprise and worth making modifications to the already “Really Big Check”! Thank you to everyone to contributed to our efforts! I have no idea how we are going to top this next year, but we have 11 months to figure it out! Special thanks go out to our entire staff as well as our customers for being so supportive and enthusiastic about this cause and helping raise a bunch of money for mammograms and alternative therapies for folks battling breast cancer. Here is a photo of Penny and Chris accepting the “Really Big Check”:
Well, Vinnie and I are off to Chico! We are visiting some friends who are celebrating the 30th Anniversary of their brewery. Any guesses? Happy Anniversary to the Grossman Family and all their staff for an amazing 30 years of Sierra Nevada! Thank you for inspiring thousands of us to get into this business. Cheers to the next 30 years!
