I need to give special thanks to the following people:



Thank you for putting up with my stress levels and moods, for allowing your otherwise spotless house to be consumed by my mess and clutter for awhile, for counting 1500+ Skittles, the kiddie bags, for your ideas, your contributions and I’m sure much more I am forgetting to mention. You kept me sane, thank you.


Melissa/Gay Porterville,

Thank you for the countless hours you put in from afar and the few here, your mad printing skills, your constant willingness to pitch in even when you really shouldn’t, your time and for always completing my Honey-Do lists. I certainly can’t imagine not having your help this year.



For the last two years, you’ve been the person I could count on to help me get things started. Thank you for being there bright and early and willing to help. Thank you for helping out during the event and going the distance in sticking around and helping pack it all away. Thank you for the constant, dependable support.



Thank you for coming early to help set up. You are a super star just like the ones you hung. Thank you for handing out bags and collecting the info sheets. Thank you for your positive attitude and willingness to help.


GCV/Fresno Crew,

Thank you for making the trip down and contributing all that you did.


I cannot forget about thanking all the players from the TC Villainz and Femz N Studz football teams for coming out and playing a great game. I look forward to the rematch next year!


Lastly, thank you to everyone who attended. You are the reason myself and everyone above does what we do. The whole purpose of the festival is to bring my community together, to know we aren’t alone, to provide a safe space and to just have fun. Thank you for being a part of that community and showing your support to all of us as well.


See you all next September!
