John Warner: Thanks for all the help for dental mission

I am about two months late in writing this thank-you to the Summit Daily News and our community. In mid-December, the Summit Daily News published a nice article about my efforts to raise money for my upcoming dental mission to Guatemala with Global Dental Relief. I would like to thank the Summit Daily for that helpful PR. I would also like to thank Kate Lapides and Monique Merrill of Amazing Grace Restaurant, who envisioned this fundraiser and helped me raise over $1,500 from their December 26th (my 60th birthday) sales. In addition, the fundraiser, which was arranged beautifully by Karin Bearnarth that evening, helped me raise an additional $4,300 for a total of $5,800. This money will be used to facilitate my goal of providing dental services to indigenous people of developing countries.

So, thank you Summit Daily News, Kate and Mona, Karin, and all of the people who contributed to this effort.
