I want to thank the following Rotarians for being so supportive of the Taste for Rotary District 6450 event:

For your most generous gifts and monetary support: David Nelson, Tricia Simpson, Bill Jenkins, Mary Beth Clausen and Jeff Pierson

For taking time out of your schedule and attending the event:  Mike Murray, Lisa Las, Bill Kaplan, Mike Ritoff, Merriam Merril, Ricardo Espinoza, and Kathy Zydek (accompanied by her husband John).

The community of Joliet was also represented by the Chicagoland Speedway (who donated a 3-day pass for next season), the Department Restaurant, the Renaissance Center, who both donated food and service and to a whole table of distinct Joliet personalities who took time from their schedule to attend this event.

I was very proud to represent our great Rotary Club #78 in joining with Rotary District 6450 to plan this great event which brought in approximately $50,000.00 for Easter Seals and Autism.  Thank you everyone!
