Mr. and Mrs. Michael Brumbaugh
Costa Mesa, California
Dear Linda and Mike,
It is my sincere pleasure to inform you that you have been selected as the July 2005 recipients of the Costa Mesa Mayor's Award! The Mayor's Award program was designed to recognize members of the community who display exemplary qualities of leadership and community involvement and to thank those who demonstrate a genuine concern for others in the Costa Mesa community.
America is unique in the world in that human kindness always reigns. The fundraiser and raffle that your family organized for the son that Giovana Tang left behind is another display of the American spirit's generous character. Although the pain that struck the Tang family cannot be taken away, the Brumbaugh family answered the call to lend a helping hand by taking the initiative to relieve some of the financial burden that accompanied this unexpected tragedy.
I believe that your generous spirit, in organizing this fundraiser, is a shining example of the ideals symbolized by the Mayor's Award program. Your care and concern for others is truly admirable and worthy of recognition. As you have already confirmed with my office, I will publicly honor you at the City Council meeting of Tuesday, July 19. The meeting will take place in Council Chambers at 6:30 p.m. at Costa Mesa City Hall, 77 Fair Drive.
Allan R. Mansoor
