Below is a thank you message from Jamie:
Hi Steve and Charlotte crew!
Wow, I’m still in shock at how successful our fundraising event at Charlotte was! And I’m not just talking about the money! The team loved our experience there. The club welcomed every one of us with open arms, the food was amazing, practice ice was perfect, conversations were even better! This club has always felt like family to me but now I can say it really feels like family for my team too. Thank you so much for all your hard work putting that event together, and helping it run smoothly! Thank you, thank you, thank you for making the trip up to Raleigh to cheer us on!!! It felt like we had the home crowd advantage every game and that was a blast! We loved looking over and see everyone having a great time! We wish we could have spent more time with you in the crowd. Anyway, just wanted to say thank you again and tell you that we love you guys!
