On behalf of the Glory, Hope & Life Board of Directors, I would like to express appreciation to the sponsors and the public for their support of our major fundraiser, "An Evening with The Jesters," held recently at the Chattahoochee Country Club. Proceeds from the event were over $30,000. We consider the event a success and plan to host it again.

Thanks to Richard Spencer and his staff at the Chattahoochee Country Club for providing a beautiful facility and their capable assistance. Scott Piotrowski and the other talented musicians who comprise The Jesters did an outstanding job entertaining the crowd.

The mission of Glory, Hope & Life is to enrich the lives of those in our community touched by cancer through resources, programs and activities that promote a sense of well-being, self-esteem and an improved quality of life. It is through the generosity of these individuals and businesses that allow Glory, Hope & Life Inc. to enrich the lives of people in Northeast Georgia touched by cancer. You are making a difference in the lives of cancer patients in our community.

Counte Cooley
chairman, Board of Directors, Glory, Hope & Life Inc., Gainesville
