Robert Bittinger Jr., founder and chairman, said, “I really appreciate my committee’s hard work and all the GVBOR’s members’ and affiliates’ donations and generosity. I would also like to give a very sincere thank-you to all the local businesses for their support year after year: Sav-A-Lot, Cornerstone IGA, Lewisburg and Rainelle Kroger, Jewell’s IGA, Kmart, Wal-Mart, Radio Greenbrier and Secure Store, and Superior Self Storage of Lewisburg and White Sulphur Springs. Lastly, (I’d like to thank) our community, neighbors and friends – such caring and giving folks. It’s your generosity that makes the difference. Thank you!”
