From Sierra and Planas:
I just wanted to take a moment to thank all of you who attended our fundraiser this past Saturday. June 2nd marked a very important time in the short life of Log Cabin Republicans of Miami. It was our first official fundraiser as an organized group. Saturday we made a HUGE statement. We made all interested parties aware that LCR of Miami is here, is strong, is fighting for our principles and is NOT going away!
We have many to thank! Thank you first and foremost to our host Omar Cassola & his lovely family for lending his beautiful home for our event. Not only is Omar the owner of the awesome Pink House but he is also a loyal and committed member of LCR Miami.
Thanks to all of our sponsors including Tipsi Stix, which people could not get enough of!
Thank you to all who made donations for our raffle and to our Raffle organizer Rick Morgan. Thank you to Nino & Eddie from Nino's Cuisine for the amazing food!!! Thank you to those who helped us set up! Thank you to everyone from our friendly Valet attendant to the wonderful women who helped serve that evening.
Thank you to Alex Cruz and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen for agreeing to be a part of our event!
Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen is a woman of her word, flying in that evening and driving straight to our Fundraiser!!! (above and beyond the call of duty). We stand by her and will continue to support her enthusiastically, all she has to do is say the word!
And most importantly......Thank you to ALL of our members and friends. Without each and every one of you, we would not have been able to accomplish such a feat! LCR Miami feels honored and blessed to have such a dedicated group of principled individuals ready to stand up and serve at a moments notice.
