Thanks from the bottom of our hearts

To the Editor:

A benefit was held on April 27th, 2008 for Aspen Wiederholt, to help defray ongoing medical costs for recent heart surgeries. Over 350 people came to the Alta Community Center to show their support.

At the benefit there were four Webkinz raffled, the winners were: Alex Larson, Jessica Larson, Courtney Langner and Morgan Claussen. We would like to thank Thrivent Financial for Lutherans for sponsoring the event.

A huge thank you goes out to the following area businesses for food donations, Hy-Vee, Lakeshore Cafe, Fareway, Storm Lake High School, and the Villager Restaurant we couldn't have had such a successful benefit without your help.

Thank you to all of the local businesses that allowed donation cans to be placed. Thank you to all that attended the event showing support for Aspen and her family. Thank you to all who mailed or hand delivered doanation. Thank you to all of the friends that volunteered to cook, clean tables, wash dishes and help at the event. We are relatively new to the Alta area and feel truly blessed to reside in such a supportive community of loving caring people. Thank you again to everyone involved with the benefit in any way.

A very special thank you goes out to Erin Berentschot for organizing the very successful event. You are truly a great friend - we love you.

The Wiederholt Family
