Letter From the Chairman of the Board of Directors, Larry Toon

As the year winds down, we want to take a moment to express our sincere gratitude for your support of Elizabeth Toon Charities. As we approach the end of our fourth year, we find happiness in looking back on the milestones we’ve achieved and the children and families that we have helped. We’re pleased to announce that this year we’ve been able to provide gifts to twice the number of organizations than in previous years. We’re so thankful to be sponsored by some of Dallas’ most notable and respected businesses and we’re happy to have added some new big corporate sponsors in 2010 like Sewell Family of Automotive Dealerships and Goodman Networks. This is all a result of your generous giving of time and resources.

Our important work is spearheaded by our wonderfully talented Executive Director, Jessica Gates. Her love, passion, and dedication to raising awareness for Elizabeth Toon Charities and increasing the organization’s reach have been tremendous.

On behalf of our Board of Directors and our extraordinary Events Planning Committee, thank you for supporting Elizabeth Toon Charities. On behalf of the Toon Family, thank you for your love and friendship. With your continued support, we look forward to continuing our mission in 2011.

Merry Christmas,

Larry Toon

Chairman of the Board of Directors
