Another fantastic Monte Carlo Night was held by DOVES on Saint Patrick's Day! DOVES, Donors Of Valley Endeavors, successfully raised over $20,000 to support programs for women and children in the Impeiral Valley and a great time was had by all.
I would like to congratulate 30 women from all over the Valley who make up DOVES: your hard work, dedication, creativity and camaraderie are to be greatly commended.
To our long list of community sponsors, thank you for your generous support; without you our event would not be possible. Thank you to those who donated grand prizes: Brook's Jewelry; Cheval's Boutique; Jack Fleming; Gary and Glenda Foster; Linda Freitas; Bill Gates; Grasso's Italian Restaurant; Dr. and Mrs. James Howard; Jordan/Central Implements; Joy Kramer; the North County Coalition for the Arts; RDO Equipment Co.; Dr. and Mrs. Horacio Rodiles; Bill Wiest Ranches; and Eddie and Theresa Wiest. And finally, thank you to the over 300 attendees — we hope to see you on March 16, 2002.
