It Was a Success!!

A couple of weeks ago I was talking about a fundraiser the organization I work for was having. We were really worried if we would make any money at all. I mean, things are really tight everywhere, for everyone.

I am pleased to say we did! We actually cleared $8,100!! Woo Hoo!! The Silent Auctions were great, we had some amazing baskets and packages. The lobster was perfect and they were actually closer to 2 pounds! I did have to wait and eat my lobster on Sunday, too busy at the event to take time out to work, but it was great Sunday also.

Now on to the next event, in December! In between times I will be writing lots of grants to make up for all the shortfalls we are experiencing.

Thanks for all the well wishes and for the wonderful man from the Orlando area who bought tickets but couldn't make it over! We have got to get together sometime!
