A fundraiser on Saturday, June 4, during Wild West Day in Upper Lake raised $633.30 to help 4-year-old Jenni Rivera-Cervantes, who recently was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
I would like to thank all the sponsors: my family for the cord of wood, Tallman Hotel, Lakeview Supermarket, Judy's Junction, Ana Santana for a flower arrangement.
Thanks also to my husband for manning the booth when I needed a break and for literally dragging people off the street to buy tickets; Tammy Alakszay for helping all day; Nor Cal Moto & Speed Equipment for giving me the space; to Jenni who came down to draw the winning tickets; to Lake County News for running her story; and to everyone who bought tickets.
I felt an amazing sense of satisfaction for being able to pull this all together with everybody's help!
