Thank you Representative Mark Sanford

It caught my eye last week that Rep. Mark Sanford scored the highest in the delegation based on his votes related to reigning in government and spur economic growth from the Club for Growth…what also caught my eye is the fact that his opponent got an F from that same organization in the state house. It’s one thing to say you’re going to vote with the taxpayer in mind; it is quite another when a politician actually does so. And for that, I’d just like to say thank you, thank you for doing what you said you would do when we elected you…

Huge thanks from AMIkids

Under blue skies with comfortable temperatures, several hundred people joined AMIkids Beaufort at Brays Island on May 7 for our Silver Anniversary Croquet Picnic. It was our pleasure to welcome as Grand Marshal State Sen. Mike Fair, R-Greenville, who has helped our program immensely over the past two years.

Thanks to generous donations throughout the weekend, we raised more than $110,000 to directly benefit the at-risk young men we serve at our AMIkids Beaufort program. The money will be used for our welding program, which helps our young men earn certificates to help them find jobs.

We offer a special thank you to Brays Island, which for 25 years has generously shared part of their golf course and driving range for our croquet. We appreciate all our supporters – without you our croquet fundraiser never would have made it 25 years!

Jimmy Boozer
Chairman, AMIkids Beaufort Board of Trustees
