  • Charity Quilt Money Presented

    Hi everyone,
    Here is a photos of Alan Giagnocavo, president of Fox Chapel Publishing and Publisher of SSW&C (left) presenting a check for $919.75 to Donald Dentler, a member of the Zembo Shrine as well as a Board of Governor's Member for the Shriners Hospitals for Children in Philadelphia, PA. The Philly hospital focuses on spinal cord injuries and is one of the top in the country at repairing those sorts of injuries. The money represents 1/2 the total revenue from the pieces auctioned off in addition to the Charity Quilt.

    Great job everyone!!!!

        Thanks for the picture, Bob. It's nice to know everyone's work (especially yours and Neal's) has been put to such a good purpose.

        Now, if I get myself a funny hat do you think people might give me large checks too?

            I'm also glad I was part of this.
            Kudos to all participants, direct & indirect.

            What we have accomplished is something we can all be proud of, and although I was a little sad that the quilt did not bring in more money, I'm glad it did bring in something at all. Some kid somewhere will benefit from it, and that is what's important.

            Congrats, and I hope to share the pleasure with you again.

              If you wear a funny hat AND grow a beard, I'll send you a check Gill!

              THANKS for the post Bob, makes it all worthwhile!

                Well ... I am SO glad we tempered our enthusiasm. Show is cancelled. Apparently, things did not go as planned. Maybe next year.
