It is with heartfelt gratitude that we wish to thank Betty Ryberg for Dancing With The Aiken Stars.

She was the moving force behind this spectacular event. Betty, your energy and enthusiasm uplifted us all and has, yet again, resulted in such a successful venture to raise funds for the Child Advocacy Center and the Community Medical Clinic.

There were so many others who also took part in Dancing With The Aiken Stars, from the many talented dancers, to the dance instructors, to the ladies who worked so hard selling tickets, to Sandy and Chris who handled the website and the financial transactions, to Chad who helped to organize and motivate, to the judges, to the decorators, to the many sponsors, to the Aiken Standard, to the many attendees, to the hard-working volunteers, to television producer Jason Seigler, to the printers, to Tom Williams, co-master of ceremonies, and to everyone else who played a part in this wonderful evening.

Betty, you are living proof of the difference one person can make in the lives of many. We are especially grateful for the assistance you have given both agencies in serving abused children and the many people who need medical care. Aiken is indeed a very caring and giving community which was definitely reflected in Dancing With The Aiken Stars.

Again, a sincere thank you to Betty and to all involved in giving back to help better the lives of many in our community.
