6 Stephen Mowery This fun-loving guy has jumped on this project with open arms!! I've decided he's this "go-with-the flow", in it for a good reason and good time type of guy!! He is married to ( I had to stalk facebook to make sure and she is) a gorgeous woman, Sara for the past 13 years!! They have 5 beautiful children so I'm not sure how either of them have any time outside of family activities. He has worked for Holloway for 12 years and also is a member of Hardin Houston Board of Education. These 2 seem to be an awesome duo!! He enjoys running, golfing and of course hanging out with his family. As most of our men he is an avid sports fan that include the Reds and Bengals. I do see one small difference in college football teams than the rest though--Guess who he likes?? Yep, the "M" word. He is a Michigan fan!! Thank you so much Steve for joining our crew this year an helping us to raise money for Compassionate Care.

In addition, he happens to be the Toys 4 Tots rep for Sidney/Shelby County. WooWee!! Chris has been married to his absolutely adorable wife, Amanda for 13 years. I kind of feel like he is the luckiest man on earth because she is a massage therapist and I can only assume she gives him nightly massages, right Chris and Amanda? smile emoticon The two of them have 2 little pumpkins--Devon, who is a 7th grader and Avery who is a 4th grader. When he has free time he is an avid runner, likes to fish and vacation with family and friends. He also is a Dallas Cowboys and Reds fan.

8 Dr. David Menning at 51 year's young this dentist, who not only has his own practice, but also donates his time to Compassionate Care patients as well. He is always spunky, fun and go-with-the-flow. We wont forget to mention we are a staff of majority of woman so we always love having handsome men in the clinic. He is married with 2 kiddos who currently go to college at OSU (Woot Woot). Dr. Menning enjoys biking, golfing and get this one, chilly dogs (something tells me his wife doesn't:). He tells me his turn on's are foreign accents, Franks Red Hot Sauce and Mick Jagger lips--LOL!! Turn offs are folks who are late, frozen pizza and men in sandals!! I bet he really loved the trend when it was white socks and sandals--sexxxy!!! Ha!! We want to thank our tree hugger for not only volunteering his time at the clinic but for being willing to put himself out there to help us raise money for a great cause.
9 Ousmane Wade is the owner of the ever famous Sene Store Senegalese Cuisine where I hear from everyone that they can cook an amazing African dish!!! He is from Senegal, West Africa. He is married to a beautiful woman, who is a Registered Nurse in Cincinnati. Her name is Aminata "Ndiaye. Wondering why their last names are different? In the African culture its not common to take on the husbands name (learn something new everyday). Here is the craziest thing--his wife is from the same town in Africa, but they met in the United States!! CRAZY!!! The two of them have 3 lovely children- Alioune, Momar, Mouhamed. He went to college in New York at Bronx College where he became an electrician but his ultimate passion is cooking, which led him to the restaurant life in little ol Sidney, Ohio. If you haven't checked out this place, I hear its AMAZING!!! We want to thank Ousmane for not only volunteering his time at the clinic but for being willing to put himself out there to help us raise money for a great cause.
CONGRATULATIONS to Dave Wood, crowned CCSC's 2nd Annual Dressed To Thrill REVISED winner!!
