Rhonda Deem and I would like to thank all the donors and volunteers who helped make the 2012 Bark-Aid 12th Annual Poker Run on July 28 a success.
We were down $1,500 from last year's run, because of another poker run on the same day and another one again on Sunday. When booking your next poker run in the future, you might want to check the computer for other poker runs being held. Consequently, in this case, both causes lost money. All proceeds went to the medical fund. Thanks to all that attended.
