Pictures - Minnesota Dinner

From Tammy Hanson, mom to Rachel and Andrew Hanson. Rachel has Rett Syndrome:

The dinner last night at Bonanza was a big success, there was close to 40 people there and everyone seemed to have a good time....the bead necklaces Clark handed out really set the mood! Made us feel like we were celebrating right in New Orleans already :-). I had to check out the rumor I heard about Clark's new hairdo and yep, he looks just like Bob now! It was great meeting all of the road crew and families. We had our 2 Rett angels there, my daughter Rachel and Jill Evert, they seemed to have fun and loved the watermelon on the buffet! Clark showed some video of recent news clips they were on and then some footage of their trial run of the river.

Note from Mary Potter, webmaster:

The Bradford family, affected by Adrenoleukodystrophy, also had a large showing of support - we think at least half the crowd alone was Bradfords or friends of the Bradfords. Over half of Team Hope is comprised of the Bradford family alone....

Good luck Team Hope!

Thanks to Lisa Evert and Andrew Gribble for these photos:
