Our car club would like to express our sincere gratitude to the Patty Pollatos Funomenon (PPF) organization. Your dedication to the Funomenon for the past 14 years has been nothing short of amazing. The Golden Gears Car Club has had the privilege of displaying our vehicles at this event for many of those 14 years. The club has donated to this event for many of those years to help support the PPF organization.

It was amazing this year to hear how much money the PPF organization has given away in their 27 years as a nonprofit organization. I believe the amount was $10 million given to many local recipients over that time period. The video shown at this year’s event captured what this organization has done from the beginning until present. Debbie Williams and her many, many volunteers worked countless hours to make this happen. I would also like to say no one in the PPF organization took a dime of payment like many national organizations do. How many nonprofits can say they don’t have overhead costs?

Over this time period, no one is perfect, but I know that everything has always been done humanely possible to give money fairly. That’s just the way Debbie and all her volunteers operate. Knowing Debbie personally along with her previous husband, Don Barnes, it just doesn’t get any better than that.

I personally along with the Golden Gears Car Club stand behind the PPF and what it stands for 100 percent.

God bless you, Debbie, and your huge network of volunteers and resources. Job well done.
