The SAA Board is pleased to report that FY’06 (August 1, 2005-July 31, 2006) was our most successful year ever in receiving charitable gifts from members and friends. In addition to the $31,000+ received specifically for Gulf Coast Relief, a total of $47,977 was received in Annual Fund gifts and scholarship donations. We are very pleased that many of you chose to give to your Suzuki organization to support ongoing programs and scholarship efforts!

We hope that the many donors who met the $75 challenge enjoyed the special CD gift with outstanding performances donated by Suzuki alumni. Send your feedback! An Annual Fund is annual, of course. The 2007 fiscal year is well underway, and we will need your generous support once again. Watch for the Annual Fund mailing coming from the Board in early November.
