Thanks to so many for the fundraiser

Newburyport Daily News

---- — To the editor:

On March 23, a fundraiser was held for me at the Elks Hall for which I am so grateful. The love and support I have received from the community is beyond anything I could have ever imagined.

I want to thank all those who purchased tickets to the fundraiser or made donations to the fund set up for me.

I also want to thank all the people and businesses that donated auction and raffle items. In addition, thanks to the Elks Club, the Henry Welch Band, Famous Pizza, Anchor Pizza, Port City Sandwich, D’Angelo’s, McDonald’s and Denise’s Flower Shop for supplying the venue, food, entertainment and flowers for the event. Also many thanks to all of those involved with planning and pulling together this fundraiser for me.

I will be forever grateful to all the people and businesses in this wonderful community for caring about me.
