Dear Friends and Business Associates,

The NO/AIDS Walk is projected to raise $145,000 this year. I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you who helped me raise $7,830 for the 15th Annual NO/AIDS Walk. This tremendous feat was due totally to the support of 134 generous sponsors.

My fund-raising efforts began on Sun., Aug. 22nd at Magnolia Cotillion XXX, the annual gala celebrating the 30th 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. Some $6,280 was raised that evening with $1,500 arriving prior to Walk Day and $50 after Walk Day. This year's total brings Magnolia Cotillion earnings to $105,191 for the past 14 years benefiting NO/AIDS Task Force. Kudos to each of you who made this impossible task a reality.

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