Backyard BBQ a Huge Success!


The 2015 EDS Association Backyard BBQ was a HUGE success! Many thanks to chairmen Laura Hollingsworth and Patti Goodwin for putting in months of hard work, as well as the volunteers who solicited sponsorships and auction items, decorated, filled coolers, sold raffle tickets, checked-in, cleaned up, and more. The new back playground was a beautiful setting, and hundreds of guests enjoyed the musical talents of EDS parents John Kelley and Joe Stevenson throughout the evening.

Thanks also to Presenting Sponsor Trotter Orthodontics and the many business and individual sponsors who generously supported the party (both through sponsorships and donated auction items); for a complete list of sponsors click here.

Congratulations to EDS grandparent Jackie Blanchard for winning the $5,000 raffle prize! In a show of amazing support for EDS, she refused the winnings and asked that they be donated to the EDS Annual Fund in honor of her grandson, Tom. Thank you, Jackie!!

Please be sure to pick up any silent auction items this week in the front office.

Now, on to Fall Festival!
