Thanks to Fanny's
On Friday, May 30, I was fortunate enough to participate in the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer fundraiser at Fanny's Restaurant in Marysville. I saw a terrific family unit working together as one with the sole purpose of helping others.
Fanny's has been in Marysville for many years. Terry, cook and brother, provided beautiful hors d'oeuvres; John, brother-in-law, provided background guitar music; Darrin and Denny (brothers-in-law) bartended and assisted with auction items; Pat, matriarch of the family, baked for Dessert Auction, giving hugs when needed. Then there were Jenny, Tanya, Cindy and co-worker Amy, all of whom will participate in the 60-mile walk in September. These young ladies produced one of the most organized and professional events I have ever seen and I have seen and worked many over the years. Last but not least, the patriarch of the family, Denny, husband and father on this night was grandfather, babysitting his six grandchildren while the rest of the family worked the auction.
Because of their efforts, the generosity of their customers and the community at large, these young ladies raised over $6,700. What an accomplishment and truly a class act all the way. For all their hard work, they deserve our thanks for a job well done.
However, the girls are not done yet, so the next time you visit Fanny's, leave little extra tip to help the girls complete their goal it will be money well spent in a terrific family business built on equal amounts of love and respect for one another. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this, it was an honor.
