To the Editor:
On behalf of the Alpha-1 Foundation, and the Alphas in our community, we want to thank you for supporting "Get the Scoop on Alpha-1," our third annual Fairmont awareness and fund-raising event.
So many thanks go out to our family, friends and our community. We had another successful event; we met the goals we set and had a great day visiting with everyone.
A special thank you to Mayor Randy Quiring for kicking off our event with a warm introduction and a proclamation. We truly appreciate it.
Also, a huge thank you to our entertainment, Doug Larson and Steve Lang. The entertainment was very enjoyable.
Our list of thank yous is overwhelming. Whether you provided an item for our auction, supported the foundation with a monetary gift, bought raffle tickets or came and had a sundae and showed your support, it all means so much. It truly helped defray costs associated with the event and supported the research and efforts of the foundation. The foundation's mission is to provide leadership and resources that will result in increased research, improved health, worldwide detection and a cure for Alpha-1 Antitrypsia Deficiency.
We are extremely grateful for your generosity and are looking forward to our fourth annual "Get the Scoop on Alpha-1 - 2013.
Believe in, dream of, hope for a cure.
Trent and Julie Liljenquist
