A big thank-you and congratulations to Andy Vanica of the Denver Bulldogs and USAFL Vice-President West, for not only getting behind this great cause from Day 1 and driving it, but for doing such an amazing job, individually raising more than $1,500 making him the highest sponsored USAFL Mo' Bro for 2010!
