FWA's FUNDRAISER DINNER ANOTHER SUCCESS

The Family Water Alliance's 11th Annual "Hot Cajun Night" Fundraiser Dinner, Auction and Raffle was a fun-filled, successful evening. Held at the Maxwell Veteran Hall on November 11th, it was a feel good night attended by over 230 supporters to celebrate private property rights.

Falling on Veteran's Day, the theme this year was "Proud to be an American". The hall was decorated in a red, white and blue theme. All men and women who had served, or are currently serving, in the armed forces were honored. Those soldiers who gave the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our liberty and rights ere also honored with a moment of silence.

FWA was please to welcome Congressman Wally Herger, Assemblyman Congressman Wally Herger addresses the crowd, while FWA's past Executive Director, Jeff Sutton, looks on.Doug LaMalfa, Kim Davis, representative for Senator Sam Aanestad, John Amaro, Glenn County Supervisor, Gary Evans and Tom Indreri, Colusa County Supervisors, Duane Chamberlain, Yolo County Supervisor, and the Honorable William S. Abel.

Each year FWA gives away door prizes to promote attendance, as well as to give Jeerry Maltby, former Colusa County Supervisor and FWA's auctioneer, with Assemblyman Doug LaMalfa.back to those that support our efforts. The Grand Prize, $1000 Christmas cash donated by Butte Creek Farms, was won by Kelly Gieger of Willows, and the First Prize, won by Susan Parisio of Willows, was a 27" flat screen TV/DVD/VCR combo worth $500 donated by Stohlman Enterprises, Inc.
