Many thanks to our Honored Guests, the representatives of our charities, The Navy Marine Corps Relief Society and Operation Gratitude, who joined us over the weekend. We enjoyed so much partnering with you to support your wonderful causes.
To our Honored Guests, Assistant Special Agent in Charge Mary Jones, SA Mark Giodani, SA Robyn Coleman, SA Jonathan Greenert, SA Ryan William Colwell
who made time in their schedules to visit with us and answer all our questions on on the real NCIS on Friday.
Thanks to those businesses who donated time, services and goods to ensure quality to our event - CARCAPCO and New Horizons Title Agency of Columbus, Ohio.
We can't thank enough the fan groups who donated time and energy putting together the wonderful fan booths set up during the NCIS Fan Fest 2008 at their own expense. You all did an amazing job!
Finally, to the wonderful fans of NCIS, that traveled from all parts of the world to join us over the weekend, thank you. We missed those of you that were unable to attend due to the economy and the hurricanes. Without all of you the NCIS Fan Fest would not exist. Thank you for opening your hearts and donating $7,440.00 to our two very deserving charities.
NCIS Fan Fest 2008 is now a wonderful memory. We appreciate all that everyone did to make NCIS Fan Fest 2008 a wonderful weekend, what an awesome team effort that benefited two wonderful charities.
Again, thanks so much to everyone involved.
The NCIS Fan Fest 2008 Planning Committee
On behalf of Chas. Johnson, myself and the cast and crew of "NCIS". we would like to thank the Fan Fest Committee for their wonderful event and their kindness to us during our attendance. We'd like to acknowledge, also, how exciting it was once again to meet the fans and enjoy their enthusiasm about our series. Needless to say, we are most grateful and appreciative.
Alas, one of our favorite gifts to those who attend each year will not be available due to an unfortunate incident. The group photo we took, along with the camera equipment we used, was stolen, and has not been recovered. We share your disappointment about the loss of a treasured memory, but hopefully some of the fan photos that have been posted will serve to recall the events of the week-end.
Thanks again for your continuing loyalty to "NCIS".
