Dear Friends and Business Associates,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you that helped me raise $7,589 for NO/AIDS Walk '98. Because this was the highest individual total this year, I won 1st place honors and a trip for two to Gulf Shores, Alabama. This tremendous feat would have been impossible without your generous support, the support of 163 sponsors.

My fund-raising efforts began on Monday, August 17th, at "Magnolia Cotillion XXIV", the annual gala celebrating the 24th anniversary of Marty Greeson/Marsha Naquin-Delain and myself. Some $6,889 was raised that evening with $700 arriving prior to Walk Day. This year's total brings Magnolia Cotillion earnings to $55,612 for the past eight 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. Unfortunately AIDS is so prevalent that practically every one of us knows someone with AIDS or HIV infection or someone who has passed away from this dreaded disease. Marsha and I walked in memory of those who have passed on. We both choose to support the NO/AIDS Walk because of the tremendous benefits it provides to the growing HIV/AIDS community throughout Louisiana.
