The youth group of the Mora Christian Center would like to sincerely thank every person who purchased or donated to the raffle ticket fundraising for the giant Easter basket.
The drawing was held on Friday, April 6, and the winner of the basket was Orlando Roybal of Mora. The proceeds of the raffle ticket sales go to help the youth attend a Teen Boot Camp to be held in July.
We would like to thank the following for making the Easter egg hunt at the West Las Vegas football field a success: Gallinas Volunteer Fire Department and the Las Vegas Dollies, Southwest Bank & Trust, O’Reilly Auto Party and El Burro Catering, Sun Loan, Walmart, Community First Bank, Zoe Pregnancy Center, Domino’s Pizza, Verizon Wireless, Enchanted Hills MHP, Duran’s A-1 Tires, Love Music, Armijo Glassworks, Pam’s Flowers and Thread Bear.
We would like to apologize to everyone who went on time to the hunt and it was already over. We accidentally started before we should have. We felt bad for the children that did not get to participate. Thank you to all who came, donated and volunteered. We could not have done it without you!
The San Miguel Unit of the Mid-Rio Grande Chapter of the American Red Cross wishes to thank the citizens of Las Vegas and our special ticket seller friend, Em Krall, for supporting our March Fund Drive for the American Red Cross.
