Thank You, Natomas!

This past Sunday the Sacramento Police officers beat the Sacramento Fire Fighters 53-45 in the first ever Battle of the Shield charity basketball game. What a great time!

As most of you know, the basketball game was the final fundraiser of a 10 month campaign to raise money for Natomas Middle School Washington DC travelers.

These families have flipped pancakes, washed cars, sold candy, eaten pizza, danced, read and ultimately fund raised their way to a great trip.

We want to say thank you very much to the entire Natomas community which supported each and every one of these efforts. It has been a true pleasure to watch the community embrace this program and support Natomas Middle School.

We appreciate every dollar, every minute of your time and contribution of your talents that each one of you offered up to support the kids and families.

This is the thing that makes Natomas great – the people.

Because of all of you the DC travelers raised about $15,000 and will be able to send about 36 travelers to Washington DC – 25 students – 9 parent/chaperons and 1 teacher.

This is just amazing and we are all very proud of the tremendous effort. Thank you all for being a part of sending these Natomas families to DC.

We promise pictures and stories when we get back – the trip is set for May 18th through 22nd.

Thank you Buzz for being a sponsor and a great partner!
