This really is a great event.

And sounds like a total blast.

It honors the memory of J.B. Mason, who tragically lost
his life.

Those of us that had the pleasure to know him, feel lucky
about the opportunity to be around him.

For those of you that didn't know him, trust us when we
tell you, he was an outstanding young man.

Any help for this event will be much appreciated by all
involved, and especially by us.
