"Straight Flush Fun-Raiser"

Racing to find a cure!

Saturday, March 11, 2006:  40 friends accompanied me on a turn-around bus to State Line, NV.  This was my first fundraising event and I am pleased to say it was a success!! 
 
We had a spectacular driver - Arthur Morgan from America Asia Express Inc. and despite what was suppose to be thunderstorms, rain, wind, hail and snow...we made great time and completely safe.
