Dear editor,

We thank everyone for making the annual Columbus Girls Basketball Backcourt Club Icebreaker fundraiser a success!

Funds raised will benefit all our Columbus Lady Cards basketball players from third grade through high school.

Thank you to Kestrel Ridge management, Lori Brown, and staff for the use of their facility, Tim and Connie Hoffman for the wonderful meal, Julien Temkin for being our awesome auctioneer, and to our guest speaker, Adrian Shepard, for his inspiring words.

Thank you to the youth coaches for assistance in promoting the event and selling tickets, to all who purchased tickets, our attendees, the auction item bidders, those who purchased tickets for the raffles, and the varsity team for helping to serve the meal.
