    Bob is my brother. I dont believe he knows anything about this fundraiser. I am truly grateful on his behalf. I hope someone will be able to contact him. All he has is a cell phone. I will check with him to see if I can give you his number if you need it. (He is not able to stay with me because I live too far away.) You can contact me at my email above.

    Thank you,
    Carolyn M.
