From the top of our organization to the base and back up again, thank all of you who this evening such a great success…from being fans in Section D (CJNU volunteers, our friends from the Winnipeg Foundation and Pegasus Publications and the Twilights), to running the display table, ESPECIALLY to the gang who stepped up to the plate when we were desperate for 50 / 50 sellers (and sold over $5, 000).
