To the editor:
I wanted to take this opportunity to sincerely thank the many individuals and businesses that supported the recent Alden Pines Golf Scramble to benefit the FISH Christmas Basket Brigade. Support of the event helps our organization to provide assistance to needy families and children in this holiday season and beyond.
We cannot thank Phyllis, Jeanne and Chris and all their volunteers enough for organizing this event on our behalf. In addition, there were a number of FISH members who made food for the dinner, donated raffle prizes and played in the tournament; thanks as always for your dedication. I would like to recognize a long list of generous businesses and organizations for their contributions to the event.
