Wow! All I can say is wow!
Look at the pic above! That's our largest crowd to date!!!!
The SC Sit Down VI was held April 14th, 2007. We had a total of 73 people here for this one! We had the Perdom rep; Chris Harper, here too. Chris had a bag full of goodies to pass out and even put a huge humidor in the Sister Care raffle! We had attendees from all over the southeast. The Wild Hare was bursting at the seams with that many people! We may outgrow this location, but until the fire marshal says we can't have anymore people in there, I'm not too worried about it! The items raffled off were out of this world! Some of the highlighted items raffled off were 6 humidors and 8 boxes of cigars!!!
The raffles were split into 2 categories; Sister Care Inc. (www.sistercare.com) and the Cigar Family Foundation, which is a charity for the people in the Dominican Republic headed by the J. C. Newman company (www.cf-cf.com). Both are truely worthwhile charities. The Sister Care raffle consisted of pretty much all items in the raffle except the humidor supplied by the J. C. Newman company, so needless to say there were a LOT of items in the Sister Care raffle. The final tally was:
That's a total of $1650 collected for the charities!!!! Thanks everyone! Those organizations will be very happy!
The list of contributors is quite an impressive one:
