From The 2008 Shore Dreams For Kids Team - THANK YOU!!!

I am proud to report that the 2008 Shore Dreams For Kids was a HUGE SUCCESS!!!

The reason why it was a such a huge success was because the hard work and dedication of the principal organizers:

Pete Mazzo, Rob Cline, Brian Meade, Val Fiorillo & Geralyn Monroe

and the generosity of all of the sponsors, donors, land and boat volunteers, car clubs, boat racers, local Elks Clubs, Special Olympics and all other attendees!

There are pictures available online for your viewing pleasure thanks to www.sharkey-images.com and www.speedwake.com

Some Shore Kids For Dreams highlights this year:
* Raised enough money to cover the event!
* Record amount of items donated to auction off to raise money!
* Over 5 Elks lodges attending!
* Over 60 cars for the car show!
* Had boat displays on land from Typhoon Service Center, OPA and the East Coast Boat Racing Club of New Jersey!
* Over 750 "special attendees" & chaperones!
* Over 30 boats providing rides!
* Over 1000 ice cream cones & floats served by CHILLY WILLY!

We also had Todd Taylor of Performance Boats Magazine on hand to shoot footage for a video special that will be featured on www.performanceboats.com

This year was without a doubt our best year yet and we have all that were involved to thank! There are 750 special people who still have smiles plastered on their faces today that are counting 363 more days until next year's event!

Best Regards,
Dave Patnaude

Default Rewarding Event

Words cannot describe the enjoyment that my family and I had participating in the Shore Dreams For Kids event. Everyone involved did a fantastic job. It seems that each year the event gets bigger and one only needs to look into the eyes of the kids as they get off a boat ride, or they eat ice cream and dance to the live band to understand how lucky we all are to have been part of a very special day.
