Dear Friends and Supporters,
Wow, what a party!
Thank you for making last Friday the best Splashdown ever. We are now the premier event kicking off summer in Stafford County. It was truly amazing to have over 500 of my friends and family gathered together in one place. The live music by the Wil Gravatt Band & the Laugh Out Loud photo booth were both huge hits! It's always nice to see friends dancing late into the evening & laughing over the photo strips from the photo booth. We've posted lots of good photos on our brand new website so take a look. We also posted ALL of those photos on Facebook so please take a look and tag all your friends! Also, please post your pics and tag me or Splashdown VIII.

Our previous attendance record from 2014 of 350 people was shattered! Our new record is now 525! At 11:00 pm the party continued with well over 100 friends still dancing and by midnight there were no food or beverages left!
A special thanks to the following groups; without their donations this party would not have been possible. Thank you to Jimmy Franklin of Hope Springs Marina, Mick Lay of Micks Sports Bar & Lounge, Cindy & Skip Causey of Potomac Point Winery & John Fick of J R Fick!
Here is what they donated to Splashdown VIII:
10 gallons of rum punch (that still needs a name) 4 kegs of beer 2 cases of wine 50 liters of fine spirits 300 pounds of pork 350 hamburgers 50 hotdogs Plus a whole lot of beans & coleslaw
At Splashdown VIII we had many VIP's in attendance:
Speaker Bill Howell Congressman Rob Wittman Senator Richard Stuart Delegate Mark Dudenhefer Treasurer Laura Rudy Clerk of the Court Kathy Sterne Supervisors Jack Cavalier Laura Sellers Meg Bohmke Wendy Maurer City of Fredericksburg Clerk of the Court Jeff Small Spotsylvania Supervisor Chris Yakabouski Bowling Green Councilman Daniel Webb Charlie Jett (former Stafford Sheriff) Dan Chichester (former Commonwealth Attorney) Tom Tomzak (former Fredericksburg mayor)
Putting together a successful party like Splashdown takes a lot of effort spanning months of preparation. I could not have pulled it off without the following for whom I'm ever so grateful:
Jimmy Franklin | Berkley Mitchell | Stan Dameron & Hope Springs Marina Our Host Committee and Large Donors Jen Ramos Andrea Hickman Michael Pollaci Bailey & Travis Milde ️ Jason & Tais Colliver Emily Yu Ted & Anne Hupka Frank Rubio Saghar Erica Kasraie Robert Hopkins
I am profoundly grateful and humbled by your support and the many who gave of their time and treasure. Although the primary goal at Splashdown is to show my supporters a great time, it is not surprising that Splashdown VIII also raised more money than any other in the past! Thank you for making it possible for me to continue to run and win elections as your Aquia District Supervisor. I hope to see you next year at Splashdown IX!
My Deepest Thanks!
