Barbecue Bingo

Dear Editor,

On behalf of the Martins Ferry Football Parents, I would like to thank several local businesses, organizations and individuals for assisting us with our recent “Barbecue Bingo” fundraiser.

Recognition is deserved to the following: A Cut Above Salon, Arby’s, Beauty Barks Day Spa, Calliope Consignment, Carolina Furniture, Cloud 9 Hair Salon, Colerain Collision, Colerain IGA, Convenient Food Mart, Custom Computers, Dr. and Mrs. Demetrio Agcaoili, Dr. Joseph Gabis, Dr. and Mrs. Melvin Saludes, Jeff & Kristy Dobson, Dutch Henry, Falbo’s Barber Shop, Fashion Manor, Ferry Hardware, Griffith’s Pharmacy, Mr. Warren Hood, Hot Rod Tattoo, Husek’s Floor Coverings, Kevin & LaNette Krob, Lash Paving, Last Lap Cafe’, Liberty Automotive, Martins Ferry Athletic Department, Martins Ferry Carry out, Martins Ferry Rec Center, National Lime & Stone, New Hong Kong, OVMC/EORH, Park Legion Lanes, Pit Stop/Starfire, Purple Rider Booster Club, Dave & Jackie Russell, Mrs. Iris Russell, Shutler’s IGA, Sudsy’s Car Wash, Sun Video/Tropical Rays Tanning, Theaker Excavating, Totterdale Supply, Wendy’s and Z’s Jewelry.

This event would not have been successful without the contributions of those listed above. Special thanks to the Freshman and Sophomore football players who helped prepare the gymnasium for the evening, and the Junior and Senior football players who spent the evening working alongside the Football Parents.

I can’t say enough about the dedication of those Football Parents who volunteered their time to organize, set up, work and clean up, after the event! I certainly hope the success of this fundraiser is a sign of good things to come for the Parents Organization.

Lastly, thank you to everyone who attended the Bingo! We learned a lot from all of you, and we look forward to seeing you again at this event next year. This truly was a “team” effort and we are grateful for all the help!
