Congratulations to Ron Kramer, owner of Thermolife, who received a Certificate of Appreciation from the City of Los Angeles, Councilman Bill Rosendahl for his generous donation of fencing for the bleachers.

Joe Wheatley Productions would like to thank all our judges, backstage staff and event staff for the hard work they have performed over the entire season. We couldn’t do it without them.
