EGPAF Fundraiser Huge Success!!!
As you can see I haven't blogged in a while as I have been busy, busy getting everything ready for the big Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation fundraiser at our home!! This included lots and lots of garden and lawn work...but the great part about that is now we get to enjoy it for the rest of the summer! Also, much organizing and collection of items for the silent auction...which was an amazing spread of items!
The day was overcast, but comfortable for the event to be outside in the yard. The kids had a ball eatting snowcones (I think Drew had at least 5!), getting their faces painted and jumping and sliding in the huge moon walk! The center of the event was the amazing band, "Clear Blue Betty", they rocked Monroe! They volunteered their time and talent for this event!! Please go check them out on their webiste www.clearbluebetty.com I have their c.d. and love it!
The silent auction was such fun and filled with something for everyone. I had my artwork on public display which was a new experience, but one I think I will get use to. I know everyone that purchased a piece so that is wonderful! I had the help of neighbors, friends and family to make this event possible. Thank you!!
Now...drum roll...we raised over $5000!! What amazing things this $$ will do for children around the world in the fight against HIV!
