On behalf of the 2007-08 Leadership class, I would like to thank the following businesses and individuals for their support of the 2008 Mr. Liberty program. Because of generous donations from community members and businesses, this important charity event is this year celebrating its 15th anniversary!
We would first like to thank Tux of Class in Antioch for its donation of tuxes for the Mr. Liberty contestants to wear during the competition. Tux of Class has consistently supported Liberty High School endeavors, from Homecoming to Mr. Liberty. As a result of its support, all our young men are well dressed and comfortable. We could not do it without them.
Additionally, we would like to thank the following businesses for their donations of gifts for the various winners within the Mr. Liberty competition. As a result of their donations, we were able to donate all funds raised to the Student Emergency Relief (SERF) Fund. Thank you to the Philly Cheesesteak Shop, Jamba Juice, Sticky Chicken and Ribs and Starbucks. Also donating services to this event was Safeway in Discovery Bay, which donated bouquets of flowers for our hosts, organizers and technical crew.
The following individuals helped to ensure the success of Mr. Liberty 2008. Without their hard work and diligence, we would not have had such a positive event. Thank you to Jacqui Boone and Kellie Summers, who choreographed the introductory and end dances; the Liberty Film Alliance, including Joe Alfaro, Robbie Becker, Robbie Rivera, April Williamson, Mike Santiago, Tom Poole and Brian Armstrong, who filmed the event; the Mr. Liberty technical crew, including Ben Baczenas, Kristen Loyd, Caitlin Dutra, Josh Mangold, JJ Baczenas, Dougie Douglas and April Talbot.
Finally, I'd like to thank our emcees for the evening: John Romeis and Beth Decker. John and Beth are entertaining, humorous and dedicated to making this event a positive one year after year. Without their wit and enthusiasm, this show would not run as smoothly. I hope that they will continue to host in years to come.
I hope that the community of Brentwood enjoyed this year's Mr. Liberty and will continue to join us in the years to come. It is tradition that binds this community together and raises money for students and families when they are most in need.
