Vauxhall, AB – 

The 8th Annual Awards/Scholarship Fundraising Banquet was once again a tremendous success.  Marty Baceda led the evening again as our MC.  Former MLB player and coach  – Sandy Alomar Sr.  electrified the crowd with stories of the past, lessons he learned and inspiration for the future.  Sandy has been involved in professional baseball every year since 1960.   Several Awards and Scholarships were handed out highlighted by the Reno Lizzi Scholarships.  Barbara & Yukio Kitagawa continued to inspire the entire Jets organization as they matched all donations in the silent & live auction up to $35,000.00.  An even greater surprise this year was the Barbara & Yukio Kitagawa offered an additional $10,000.00 to their donation if last years totals were surpassed.  Currently, we are very close and still accepting donations to push us over the top.   The 2014 banquet has set a new standard for years to come!!!
