Dear Austin Chronicle,
    I am writing to acknowledge the team of people who were the heart and muscle behind the silent auction part of the Willie Graham Legg-Perthes benefit last weekend [“Live Shots,” Music, July 1]. Kudos to all of the musicians, donors, and volunteers who pitched in to make it happen and make it so very special, but most especially to the core committee of women who envisioned the silent auction idea, circled the wagons, and made the event happen in only a very few short weeks – Dianne Scott of the Continental Club and Rajiworld Agency, Brenda Hutchison of Van Go Touring/Orbit Salon, Roggie Baer Elm of Rajiworld Booking Agency, Jo Rae Dimenno of Hardpressed Publicity, and Kathy Sever of RamonsterWear.
    The donation of time and the combined clout of this impressive team of Austin women insured an incredible event, which appeared to be a huge success.
Best wishes to Jon Dee, Willie, and family,
Mark Newman
