To the editor: 
We would like to extend a sincere thank you for the show of support we received during our First annual Donkey Jamboree fundraising event. The event was great fun, with fabulous music, food, a wonderful collection of raffle items. The stars of the event were rescue donkeys Ferris and Abby and Founder of PVDR Mark Meyers and his world famous Burro Collies.

We would like to say thank Jeannie Guttke from the Golden West Casino and employees who put such a lot of time and effort in organizing the fundraiser. Thank you just doesn’t seem to be enough.

A special thanks goes out to all of our generous sponsors for their support: Golden West Casino, ACE Hardware, Budweiser, Johnson Brothers, Miller, MORCON Industries, Southern Wine, US Food and Wirtz Beverage. Big thanks to Terry Caudill, Golden West Casino owner.

Steve, The Piano Man, provided music and songs to the crowd and had them dancing and singing along with his music.

Jean Watkins & the Mesquite Showgirls, added lots of colorful feathers and sparkles along with their beautiful smiles while they circulated throughout the crowd selling raffle tickets.

Thank you to the businesses and individuals that provided the raffle prizes ACT, Baja Imports, Eureka Casino ,Golden West Casino, Jade Sports, Jerry and Cathy Greenway, Jodie Metzger, Lees Liquor,  Ready Golf and Wear, Mesquite Veterinary Clinic, Oasis Chiropractic, Playoffs, Scenic General Store, Valley Curls  and  Jackie Winters.

A special thanks to the many volunteers who worked to make this event a success. We appreciate everyone that shares their time helping with the adoption center in Scenic.

And also a big thank you to all of you that took time to come and support the event. We appreciate the people that continue to follow the donkey rescue and those new individuals who will now become part of the PVDR Family.
