I just wanted to let everyone know that I have sent the cashiers check for $4,600 to the Friends of Mary Heiny
I want to take a moment here to thank all of the folks who generously donated the 80 prizes as well as all of you who purchased one of the almost 450 tickets. Seeing the worldwide aikido community come together -- across organizational, stylistic, and geographic borders -- to participate in this raffle was a pleasure for me. I feel proud to be a part of this aikido community of ours!
So, thank you, everyone!
