Dear Friends and Business Associates,

The NO/AIDS Walk is projected to raise over $150,000 this year. I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you who helped me raise $8,549 for NO/AIDS Walk 2003. I placed second this year. This tremendous feat was due totally to the support of 171 generous sponsors.

My fund-raising efforts began on Sun., Aug. 17 at Magnolia Cotillion XXIX, the annual gala celebrating the 29th anniversary of Marty Greeson, aka Marsha Naquin-Delain, and myself. In lieu of gifts, guests are asked to sponsor me in the NO/AIDS Walk each year. Some $6,899 was raised that evening with $1,600 arriving prior to Walk Day and $50 following Walk Day. This year's total brings Magnolia Cotillion earnings to $97,361 for the past thirteen years benefiting NO/AIDS Walk. Kudos to each of you who made this impossible task a reality.

Thousands of walkers joined in this huge fund-raising effort. Marsha and I choose to support the NO/AIDS Walk because of the tremendous benefits it provides to the HIV/AIDS community throughout Louisiana.
