Our second annual B.I.S.O.N. Mentoring Banquet went off without a hitch and was deemed a success by all. I think those that were able to attend enjoyed the wonderful meal catered by The Cattle Exchange from Canadian, Tx. All bellies seemed full that evening. :) Chassidy did a great job entertaining us with her special song that Lake Carpenter spent countless hours helping her prepare. Our speaker, Brian Hunter, did an oustanding job and humbled all of us by showing his emotional vulnerability when he spoke about his mentor memories from his childhood. Brian also shared with me that he was ablte to raise a signifigant amount of money for his non-profit organization, Strong to the Finish. Brian was overwhelmed by the generosity of a few donors. On behalf of Brian, thank-you for being moved to do that!
Overall, it was a super evening that we were all able to share and enjoy. In my opinion, it just solidifies why this program is so very important, and why we need to continue to do whatever is necessary to keep it going.
The following are some pictures from that night. Hope you enjoy them!! :)
