He’s talking about the various ways outreach is occurring for “National Inclusion Project”, keeps bringing it back to the fans and audience. Talking about the “power you have in making this work for all of us”. He sounds so appreciative.
Clay holding u a check for $15K for the Florida Alliance Camp
Diane Bubel is talking about having a child with disability and without and how sometimes children with disabilities don’t want to have therapy or special treatment but just want to participate or do things like other children. Talking now about how a child can use a bow and arrow like other children with assistance so the child can do things with other children and the other children can see that the disabled child can do the same things. Looking into the audience and seeing how the audience is full of different people and says there was a time when women were isolated, poor children were isolate, but programs accommodated the need for change. Talking about how the color of people’s skin used to keep people apart, but disabled still are sometimes kept apart…diversity is a great thing.
They are showing a video now so no one is speaking.

The auctioneer is teasing the audience saying that if they bid fast, Clay will be on singing sooner.
First auction is golfer Player wine bottles.

Jerry–as clay mentioned early, economic times are tough –esp. for families with children with special needs. Joe the auctioneer is not here–says he and Clay together are entertainment in themselves. Say he’ll try to do it. The raffle is a 32 inch flat screen. Taylor spinning and they’ll draw a number to see who puts the TV in her luggage–Diane C.
She lives in Miami. Says that works out great. Speaking of birthday, I would be remiss if I didn’t say we had 2 granddaughters born in 2008 and today is the first grandchild’s birthday. Some things donated. Some items may be added. Mixture of foundation/Clay related and some Wayne-related. Starting with one of the largest. Online bids and Aron will identify when they get to the online bid. First item is a voice-message greeting on your mobile phone. Starting bid online was $1000–Clay’s voice. Says the long lady who bought this before is present–asks if she needs it refreshed. Bidding—starts at $1000, no one. $10,000. Asks about $5, $50, got a $1000 bid. Asking for $1500. Online bid is $1500. Says Clay will say whatever you’d like to write–very business-like or personal. Clay doesn’t care because he won’t be listening. Got $2000. Excellent! . Asks if someone is just scratching or rubbing her head. Ok–went for $2000, but says there are TWO people–ok, moving up to $2100. $2200. $2300. $2400. $2500.
