The winners of the Peak Asset Management Celebrity Challenge are …
Graham and Larry Nessel, Formula Ford Run Group
Congratulations, Graham and Larry! $2000 will be added to Graham and Larry’s fundraising total.
Who was the celebrity who donated to Graham and Larry? We believe that Bill Henley—who donated to Graham and Larry—is Don Henley’s (Eagles) estranged brother. Main stream media would have you believe that Don Henley is an only child (fake news?), but we believe that Don has a brother he doesn’t acknowledge. Also, Don Henley’s son’s name is Will, which is short for William (often the formal name of “Bill”). Coincidence? We think not.
