BUT WHAT'S coming up!!!
You must know that this didn't keep me down!!!
We had a meeting last night with 2 lovely ladies...Gloria Cirulli and Marcy Gitterman!! They are well seasoned event planned with a great deal of fundraising experience! We are excited to say they will be pairing up with us to plan next year's BIG event...Our First Annual Golf Outing & Gala! We are looking at fall 2014 so the planning is just beginning....but get your golf clubs ready and find all the golfers you know!! This will be the event of the season!!!
In the meantime...we are preparing for our Angels Among Us event...scheduled for September 27th 2013. We will be at the Hotel Somerset-Bridgewater. Doors opening 6:15, dinner 7:00, show starts at 8-11. We will have some surprises so be prepared!! Some lovely baskets and maybe even a 50/50!?!? If you haven't reserved your seat yet...you still have a chance...we have 4 or 5 seats left...but I am not sure how long they will last!
The next thing we want to get underway is Pajama Day across all of our elementary schools. We are hoping to get an audience with the necessary people later in September. It's a great way for the kids to get involved and learn about paying it forward...it is also a good time for students who may be dealing with an illness at home to find they have someone to turn to.
Our final event for 2013 will hopefully be our Stories with Santa!!
We will be putting the ideas on the table at our next meeting (probably the 2nd week of Sept).
Day By Day Hope Foundation has been contacted again this year and asked to help support another foundation in it's attempt to raise money for a breast cancer center in Connecticut...my home state! Third Annual Breast Cancer Awareness Photo Shoot!! We had a great time last year and I have invited EVERYONE I know in Ct to join me and this wonderful group to raise some money! Check it out on FB and if you have questions, let me know!
SO This is what's going on!! Keeping busy, staying focused, enjoying the weather...not letting cancer get me down! Hoping we can bring some relief to other families facing this battle everyday! If you want to be a part of our mission, please let us know...together we can ease the burden cancer places on a family, the only way we can...day by day!!
