The FOBs will be presenting gifts to Edgar Prado on Monday, August 4 to celebrate Edgar's induction into the Hall of Fame. The presentation will include a gift basket (created by Kennett Florist), roses (to symbolize the Kentucky Derby win), and a donation in Edgar's name to the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund.

Results of our donations:
Total collected- $1084.00
Roses- $55.00
Wire fee- $6.95
Kennett Florist- $21.05
Donation- $1000.00

I would like to thank Kennett Florist who basically worked for free. They took staff, labor, and merchandise and donated it all to this project. Their cost is way over the $21.00. Alie herself assembled the basket so it would meet her standards. This fundraiser would not have been possible without the wonderful people at Kennett Florist.

I would also like to extend my thanks to Jane Heart and Anna Bryant for their generosity! Their gifts will speak to the core of Edgar’s heart as he gazes upon the image of Barbaro.

The FOBs congratulations to Edgar will be beautifully conveyed through Beverly’s certificate. Thank you so much Beverly!

Thanks to Dory and Bea for doing the legwork for the presentation and us. They are going to do the physical job of delivering the gifts and making the presentation. Not an easy task by any measure! They both have offered their unconditional support with good humor and excitement. Thanks!

And to the FOBs……you always amaze me! Many, Many Thanks!

Jan,

THANKS to you and all of the FOBs who gave of their time and talents to make a special day even more special for Edgar.   A more deserving soul does not walk this earth.

And what can we say about the folks at Kennett Florist.   They always go above and beyond to make everything perfect.   And as you stated, they do it for nothing.   Bless them all.

Thanks for letting me be part of this.

A few weeks ago Ali sent me an email and asking me to fill out a testimonial for KF. She said they can't afford the big advertising cost of things like 1-800 Flowers etc and the testimonial will help them with google hits.  Did anyone else get this request?  She said she sent it to people on her lists.
