The luncheon was perfect! Everyone raved about how delicious the meal was that Olga & Rod Gallegos had prepared for us. We can’t wait to have them back again! THANK YOU SO MUCH, OLGA & ROD!
Thank you to Byron Takeuchi for allowing us to use some cooking equipment and donating his time.
We would like to extend our sincere gratitude and appreciation to all the San Gabriel Judo families that helped make this a very successful event. The dojo would not be able to put on this event without all the families continued support and dedication. Thank you for all your donations, ad purchases, playing golf, helping in the kitchen, clean up, taxi-service to and from the golf course, etc. Together, we work great as a team for an amazing cause – our kids!
Also, a special thank you to those who helped with the quick clean-up and set-up for the judo clinic!
Now it’s time to get our judokas ready for these upcoming tournaments!
