The staff of the Reno Problem Gambling Center (pictured here: Denise Quirk, Colin Hodgen on the right and George Howell on the left) wish to thank you for your generous support of our second annual Parking Lot fundraiser, held at the RPGC on Friday and Saturday, October 19 and 20, 2012.
Noticeably present were our Board of Directors, including Judy Cornelius, Shirley Rodgers, Debra Robinson, Joshua Woodbury, and several of our new volunteers. We are grateful for the volunteer time, strength, and personal donations each of the staff, directors and volunteers gave for weeks ahead of the event and for many hours on Friday and Saturday. Our UNR volunteers were very busy leading up to the event picking up donations, making calls, loading and unloading the POD in our back parking lot, and making terrific sales, all of which made for a successful fundraiser. We can presently claim a $1627.00 profit, fully $400 over last year’s fundraiser, and we’re not done yet! Two of our big items, a large telescope and a brand-new microwave/convection oven, are going to be listed on Craigslist this week (you may find them under the Reno/Tahoe Craigslist heading of “For Sale, Appliances and Toys & Games.”) Those of you interested in either of those items may certainly call Denise or George at 284-5335 and come by and see them at the RPGC when we return from the Thanksgiving holiday.
We are very thankful for all of our donors, helpers, friends and family who support us and help us towards our vision of raising awareness and helping families affected by problem gambling. Thank you and may your Thanksgiving bring many wonderful blessings to you!
Denise F. Quirk, CEO and Clinical Director
