This post was relative to what was generated by HoonDog Events from the Legend Lives Tour only. This includes individual contributions to Boys Republic made to us, the Wigwam, profits from our sales, the charity event in Yukon etc.
It is not however a collective accounting of everything that was provided/donated to Boys Republic by the Bullitt community.
Obviously, Steve's personal contribution was a very generous and charitable one at a personal level.
Jim's contribution with the stickers was also significant.
During the event, there were many Bullittheads who gave generously during the Friday night auction, contributiong literally thousands collectively.
If we were to tally all these direct contributions, as well as accounting for all the personal time, as well as financial support relative to incorporating, and organizing, the Legend Lives Tour, and Friends of Steve McQueen Show, we would be well past any current stated number.
The point of the post, again, was simply to note what the Bullitt community was able to raise via the direct donations/earnings of HoonDog Events and the Legend Lives Tour.
But as can be seen, there were way more individual levels of giving by various Bullittheads as could be accounted for....those personal donations have no basis of being claimed by us! They should be accounted for and recognized individually given they were made not by or through the efforts of HoonDog. But neither was this thread meant to exclude them by any means.
The simple truth should remain.....Bullittheads are simply an incredibly generous lot, and this forum has shown time and again what we can accomplish as a group.
On behalf of HoonDog, to those who made any contribution in time, effort, or financial contribution in support of Boys Republic, we thank everyone for your generosity in supporting such an incredible organization as Boys Republic!
