My wife and I would like to extend to the Rotary Club of Indian Rocks Beach our most sincere appreciation and gratitude on winning the grand prize to see Super Bowl 50.
To say it went beyond any expectations we ever had is an understatement.
Everything from the Hotel to visiting the City of San Francisco was great fun. A great city to walk we were able to see some sights including Alcatraz prison. As a bonus we were able to visit family who reside in nearby San Mateo.
I have watched many Super Bowl games. Never did I imagine being in the stadium. The excitement of the game and half time show was indescribable.
My wife and I have been married for 17 years and have spoken of taking a second honey moon with San Francisco being on the short list of destinations. Being able to make this trip was truly memorable.
In closing I would again like to thank the Rotary Club of Indian Rock Beach for this prize. To know that you and your members work so hard to raise money to benefit a good cause is inspirational. And I will be buying another ticket this year.
