To the Editor: The spurs were jingling and the broomstick skirts swirling as our guests of the Island School Tarpon Ball 2012 two-stepped to the rocking music of the Dixie Highway Show Band on February 25.
The co-chairs of the Tarpon Ball would like to give a Texas sized thank you to our sponsors: Bayson Company, Hudson’s Grocery, All-Phase Custom Mill Shop, Inc., Gasparilla Properties, Inc., Grande Aire Services, Inc., Michael Saunders & Company, Northern Trust, Gulf to Bay Sotheby’s Realty, Key Agency, Inc., McHugh-Porter Builders, Inc., Safety Harbor Builders and the Temptation Restaurant.
We would also like to extend our thanks to the Island School Foundation for their continuous support as well as several individuals who gave of their time and talent: Susan Bowers, Hazeltine Nurseries, Peter Diebold, The Island School Foundation, Richy Edwards, Chad Lach and the Gasparilla Island State Park, Gary Cross and the Barnichol Hardware, Ronica Davis, Dave Vogt and Grove City Electric, Hartmans’ Print Center, Emily & Howard Wise, Maureen & Michael Ruettgers, the families and staff of The Island School who helped set up and the children of The Island School for their beautiful artwork that adorned the tables.
Our enduring gratitude to the many individuals and businesses that donated to our live and silent auction-their generous support resulted in the most profitable fundraiser to date! We are extremely grateful to all who attended the roundup and hope everyone enjoyed the evening!
