MADRES' 2018 ACTIVITIES
MADRES SAY CONGRATULATIONS TREVOR!
Several San Diego Madres were among those present for a recent afternoon Press Conference honoring the San Diego Padres' pitcher Trevor Hoffman for his selection to the Baseball Hall of Fame.  Madres President, Kandi Nieto is pictured above sporting her "Madres Say Congratulations" sign for Trevor. 
Trevor's storied career includes 601 saves, a 2.87 ERA and being a 7 time All-Star. Padres fans will never forget the gong sounding just prior to the playing of Trevor's entry song, "Hell's Bells" and his running in full speed  from the bull pen to the mound. Trevor will be inducted into the Hall of Fame on July 29, 2018 and many San Diego Madres plan to attend. For more information on Cooperstown Packages available, please refer to our upcoming events below.

MADRES AND FRIENDS ROLL THE DICE ON CINCO DE MAYO

The Madres gathered for a Cinco de Mayo Bunco evening on Sat May 5, 2018.  We had about 26 people enjoy an afternoon of Mexican food and lots of fun.  This was a smaller group then we normally have but we were still able to raise around $500.  As we always say, more than we had before and we had fun doing it.  I want to say thank you to all who took the time to come out and play and especially those that helped set up, clean up, and donated food and raffle items.  I really had to rely on others for this one and as usual, my friends came thru and helped me out, you guys are the BEST!  I look forward to having another one as a lot of our usual attendees weren’t able to make this one.  Look for a future date to roll the dice and have some fun!

When Pati Zambori called out the name on the winning Cruise Drawing ticket, Marilyn Rutland let out a whoop and a holler as if she were the winner.  Come to find out, Dick Hanson, who has purchased Madre Annual Opportunity Drawing tickets from Marilyn in years past was indeed the winner, and Marilyn was thrilled for him.

 By any account, our efforts this year were a big success.

SIGHTS AND SIPS
Thirty-three Madres and friends gathered to board the Hornblower Sights and Sips Sunset cruise on Friday Sept 29th. It was a perfect night on the Bay. We even got to dance the night away. The best part was Barb Cooke picking the best dance partner. Dorothy Yonemitsu and Barb danced to Dancing Queen. A great time was had by all, and thanks to everyone who joined us, the Madres raised just over $400 to support Youth Baseball and Softball in San Diego County.

BINGO!!
Twenty-four Madres and friends joined in the annual Bingo fall gathering. One table in particular seemed to generate more "BINGO"s than any other. A delicious lunch, Opportunity Drawings and the games of Bingo all contributed to a successful event.
