The two largest awards of $2,500 each to the top male, Antonia Ramonda-Pruit, and female, Molly Jaax, were provided by a donation from the Weary Family Foundation. Bob and Dale (Weary) Clore were present to make these awards. Rep. Tom Moxley presented the other 11 awards, which were made possible by the auction held at Equifest.
