On behalf of DOVES (Donors of Valley Endeavors), I would like to thank those who contributed and donated so generously to our annual Monte Carlo Night fund raiser. It was a resounding success and DOVES will distribute over $22,000 to support programs for the benefit of women and children in the Imperial Valley.
Congratulations to the 30 women from all over the Valley who make up DOVES. Your hard work and dedication are the foundation of this wonderfully successful organization.
To our long list of community sponsors, thank you for your loyal and generous support. Without you, our event would not be possible. Thank you to those who donated grand prizes: Brooks Jewelry & Gifts, Jacques 'n Jills, RDO Equipment Co., Eddie and Theresa Wiest, Country Casuals, Glenn Cadrez, San Diego Chargers, Rudy Seanez, Grasso's Italian Restaurant, Joy Kramer, Green's Jewelry, Gordon Farley, Bill and Margie Wiest, North County Coalition for the Arts, Kearney & Co., Jordan/Central Implement Co., Dr. and Mrs. Horacio Rodiles. A very special thank you to Viejas Casino and Wal-Mart. And finally, thank you to our 375 guests— we look forward to seeing you next year on March 22, 2003.
