A $14,284.82 Thank you!

It has been a month since the Best of the Best and time is flying by quickly.   We have a couple items to still take care of from the show and a little issue with the barns still open but all in all things are about back to normal.   We are working on 2015!

Dawn and Clea Thank You LetterToday we received a letter that we wanted to share with each of you.  This was certainly a nice thing to receive in the midst of all the Ebola News that is going on today.

This year, as you all know, we will be sharing the proceeds from the Best of the Best with UCP/Team Marley but also giving to Suicide Awareness through the Evan Peoples Memorial Fund.   We are proud and honored to help both of these charities in any way we can.   Although this year was a little trying for us due to a couple of people who questioned our integrity about the show and the charities, the following letter helped remind us that we do not put on the Best of the Best for those people, we do it because that is our purpose on this earth,  which is to always help others ~ and if we have a great time in the process, that is a bonus!

For all the Sponsors who gave towards the show, for every person that leant a hand, for every entry that was paid for, to IBRA for sharing their fee, for all of you THANK YOU from On the Road with Dawn and Clea and the Road Crew!   We could not do any of this with out all of you!

Love one another a little more today, it matters!

Dawn and Clea
