"Murph for Miller" sponsors & donations

Thanks to the corporate sponsors of this worthwhile cause. The following Warrenville businesses were gracious enough to provide food, drinks, and refreshments to participants of the inaugural "Murph for Miller." An event like this would not have been possible without the support of these community businesses. Please thank them the next time you stop in!!

Atlanta Bread, Cantera
Courtyard Banquets, Warrenville
Dominick's, Danada
Go Roma, Cantera
Jewel, Danada
Potbelly Sandwich Works, Cantera
Rock Bottom Brewery, Cantera
Starbucks Coffee, Cantera

Maribeth Kaye did all the legwork to arrange the donations and then....pickup and deliver the food to the event. Without her, we'd still be fighting over the one package of Oreo's!
Bobby K, Brian M, and Jen M played a very special part on Saturday. If you were there, you know why their parts were so critical. Thanks a ton for your efforts!

Also, financial donations were made by particpants and fans alike for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation. At this time, $957 was collected on April 19th, with more money still being donated. Brian M is still collecting donations for the next few days, until he sends the money in. Donations after that time can be made online here. From the SOWF website: The Special Operations Warrior Foundation (SOWF) was founded in 1980 to serve members of the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps Special Operations community. A tax-exempt 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization, SOWF is dedicated to providing free college scholarships and educational counseling to the children surviving Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps Special Operations personnel who are killed in a training accident or operational mission. These services are provided throughout the United States, or overseas, depending upon where the surviving children reside. Click here for more information about the SOWF.

Lastly, here's a great article from the Daily Herald.
