Benefactor Toasts

To a person so generous that it makes me want to say, "Yes, my friends, here is a Santa Claus.”

To our benefactor, whose presents make our hearts grow fonder.

Here's to our benefactor, who is to be honored. As Calvin Coohdge said, "No person was ever honored for what he re­ceived. Honor has been the reward for what he gave."

To quote Jonathan Brown, "Whenever the occasion arose, he rose to the occasion."

To our benefactor - who came forward when we needed him most, proving the old saying that "When it gets dark enough, you will see the stars.”

To our good friend and benefactor, whose charity never failed use.

Here's to our benefactor, whom God must love, for the Bible says, "God loveth a cheerful giver."
