Game Ticket Winner - Skip West

Giants Game Getaway Ticket Winner
Skip West

Congratulations to local resident Skip West for being the big winner of the S.F. Giants Weekend Getaway! Skip told me when he attended the Veterans Memorial Bridge Ceremony he stopped by the BBQ at the Veterans Memorial Hall. While there he picked up Tile forms for his father and grandfather and bought $20 worth of raffle tickets.

Skip will be taking his son Spencer with him to the ball game who as it happens will be celebrating his 32nd birthday the day of the game!!! What a great Birthday Weekend for father and son.

Skip comes from a military family. His grandpa fought in WWI, his father served in WWII and his uncle Tom served in the early years of Vietnam. Although not a veteran himself Skip was a purser on an airline that shuttled troops into Kuwait from Okinawa Japan and Germany during the Iraq War. He recalled the thick black skies from the many oil fields that were ablaze.

Thank you Skip West and all who bought tickets for this worthy cause. We raised roughly $3200 from raffle sales and helped to keep the Veterans Memorial Park fresh in people's minds.
