Bryson build winner

Post by JT540 » Tue Mar 08, 2016 9:36 am

We have a winner! Jesse James out of Okeechobee won the raffle boat. Her ticket was pulled by little man Bryson himself. Jesse bought 2 tickets in the morning then came back on her way out to buy just one more ticket. Jesse said she had a good feeling about that one and sure enough that was the winner!

I also want to let everyone know that we raised $24100.00 for the family for there medical bills. This was a great cause and it was a pleasure and a honor to help this deserving family and a great little boy to help fight cancer. We had an extra set of rudders made and had Painterchic wrap them for up as a gift and a keepsake for the family. I was so happy that the family made it down and we got to spend the whole day watching Bryson and his sister McKenzie play. Typical brother and sister but it was good to see and he was feeling good. Hes a handful for sure. Thanks Gary and Sarah Owens for letting us be a part of your family and we look forward to many more get togethers and family outings in the future.

This was one of the greatest things I have ever seen. Seeing the donations of time, effort and materials was impressive.

WOW!!

I would like to say a heartfelt Thank You to JT540. He is a very generous man, not only by donating the motor but also organizing all of the donations and assembling the boat for this giveaway.
You are truly an angel for the Owens family. :angel4:

JT540, I don't know you personally however, any person who puts the time and effort that you did is a person anyone would be glad to know. If we had more people like yourself this world would be a hell of a lot better place. Thank you for what was done!
