Juan Albelo Martinez Auction was a huge success
Thank you to all the individuals, families and businesses that participated in the Juan Albelo Memorial Dinner and Auction. There was about $12,000 raised through your generosity in donating, dining and purchasing. Thank you to those who brought sides and the friends and family who volunteered selflessly to ensure the event was top notch from set up through take down. Thank you to the Observer for the great advertisements. Thanks to the businesses that displayed the event on their reader boards. Thank you to the Friends of Chinook School for their event center. Thank you to my wife, Debbie. Throughout this highly emotional and lengthy process you were beside me most of the way and in front of me the rest of the time. Thank you, Juan Albelo, for being my right-hand man this summer, rest in peace my friend.
