Saturday's diners made holiday bright


The Uglys of Haines would like to thank everyone who attended the 11th Annual “Gifts for Grub” Christmas toy drive dinner. Once again the good people of Haines showed up with toys and donations to make Christmas a little brighter for all the children of Haines.  

We would also like to thank the American Legion for its hospitality, the Salvation Army, who will distribute a good portion of the toys, all who brought in so many great homemade dishes, and of course, Santa Claus. The winners of our “You Play Santa” raffle were: Joanie Wagner for Hospice of Haines, Sherry Nason for Haines Animal Rescue Kennel, and Al Badgley for the Haines Volunteer Fire Department. A $100 donation will be made to each of these organizations in your name. We look forward to seeing you all again next year, and wish you all a Merry Christmas.

Chuck Mitman, The Uglys of Haines
