    Congratulations to OM and Brooke. I remember setting an alarm so that hubs and I could vote on three devices. Every little bit helps get Whoopers to St. Mark’s. YAY!

    Seven SPECIAL groups of special people won! The Rare folks did their work. Votes only were only a small part of overall decision, and OM’s Brooke made it to the trophy finish line. That $5,000 will help with a gallon or two of travel and airfare gas? Congrat’s OM. Well deserved.

  18. Vivienne Rimoldi March 10, 2015 8:17 am

    Very pleased for Brooke and Operation Migration! Well deserved recognition to a wonderful cause.
