Special night for Vail Valley family

Vail, CO, Colorado

We would like to thank the entire Vail Valley for the Andrew Claymon Benefit fundraiser event that was held on May 7. It was a very special night for Andrew and our entire family.

We are hugely appreciative for the overwhelming outpouring of support and caring from so many people and businesses in our community. This is such an incredible place that we all live in, but the people that live here are even more incredible.

We would like to express enormous thanks to Alan and Trisha Lewis, Karen Simon and the Vail Valley Charitable Fund, Nora and Joe Murbach, Linda Chase and the Vail Eagle Hockey Association, Brett and Marty Lich, Kim and Dave Peel, Kathy Fagan, Bernie Simon, Nancy Hanrahan, Brian Deem, Resort Technology Partners, First Bank, The Vail Daily, Moe’s Original Barbeque, everyone who helped with the event in any way, all of the local schools and organizations who donated side dishes, desserts and drinks, everyone who made monetary donations and who donated silent auction items, and all 750 people who attended and donated and bought silent auction items.

We would also like to thank all of the individuals and businesses that have given us free or discounted products and/or services over the past five months. Thank you to Vail Valley home health-care nurses, especially Lindy, who we see on a weekly basis. You always seem to make our days a little bit better. Thank you to the Shaw Cancer Center staff for being our local support system when we need your services. Thank you to the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation for honoring Andrew at your annual banquet and for the new hunting rifle and private elk hunt that you have donated to Andrew. Thank you to Berry Creek Middle School for the fundraisers that you have organized for Andrew. Thank you to Eagle County Charter Academy for the multiple fundraisers that you have held and continue to hold for Andrew.

Thank you to our neighbors and friends for all of the meals and help with our pets. We could go on and on and on and please know that we are so thankful and appreciative of all of you!
