The Bingo fundraiser that Team Isaiah had in honor of Teresa Lopez was a great success. Team Isaiah raised $1,245 for the American Cancer Society. This will help ACS to further research for a cure for cancer as well as educate people on some preventative measures. Money raised also goes to help those currently battling cancer. Every dollar helps and I'm so glad that we could do our part.

I have a long list of people and businesses to thank. Without their help, this fundraiser wouldn't have been possible. If I forget someone, I apologize in advance. First and foremost, I want to thank my Heavenly Father for the outcome. I truly believe that he has blessed Team Isaiah with the ability to fundraise. Second, I want to thank Father Greg Beaumont from the Holy Family Catholic Church for the use of their church hall. Thank you to my husband, Doug, my daughter, Nicole, my son, Andrew, Martin Quinn, Vicky Spivak, Marla Pettitt, Veronica Thomas, Veronica Valenzuela and Robert Gonzales for everything they did to help.

I'd like to give a big heartfelt thank you to the following businesses for their generous donations of gift cards or product: Subway, Baby Cakes ice cream, Tomasko's in Pismo Beach, Nelson's Hardware, Yumyum, Diamond Rose Boutique, Diane's Cafe, Yano Chiropractic donated gift cards to Kingsburg Super Market and Save Mart, Los Pepes, Jackson's Welding donated a gift card to Edo-ya, Port of Subs, Starbucks, Dinuba Platinum Theatre, Max's Cafe, Foster's Freeze, G's Car Wash, Selma Theatre, Berman's Flowers, Cal CA donated tickets and a parking pass to a Fresno Grizzlies game, The Sky's the Limit in Pismo Beach, White Lily Day Spa.
