Letter to the Editor
Thanks to supporters of Friends of Ryan

March 06, 2013

Dear Editor,

We wanted to give the following special recognition for supporting us in our inaugural Friends of Ryan Kennedy fund raiser this past weekend: A Space 2 Dream, Ryan’s friends and family, Buck Shots Bar and Grill, Turtle Toys of Clarkston, The Clarkston News, the Graphic Wizard, Independence Township Parks, Recreation and Seniors, Clarkston Schools staff, Matt Walls and The Locals.

We also wanted to thank all of the volunteers and all of the guests who donated to our cause. We had over 90 businesses donate items (a list can be found on our website at sites.google.com/a/clarkston.k12.mi.us/fork) and services and were able to raise over $15,000.

It truly was amazing to see all the support for Ryan and the playground project. It was better than we could have expected and a tremendous kick off to our fundraising efforts!

Save the date for May 4 for a 5K Run and May 11 for Kids Day in the Park, both upcoming fundraisers. Please "like" us on facebook or follow us @FriendsofRK on twitter for up to the minute information.

Sincerely,

Friends of Ryan Kennedy
