Soooo Close!

My fellow walker (& cousin)- Mayme - and I held a Dining for Donations event tonight.  We cooked a 5 course dinner for our family members in exchange for a suggested donation of $20 per diner. We served dinner to 18 people and raised a whopping $600!! We are so thankful for their generosity and support I can’t even begin to express it! 

With tonight’s donations that also puts me only $27 away from my fundraising minimum of $2,300!  I am completely amazed that it happened so quickly.  I’ve done this twice before when the economy was MUCH better (I'm in Michigan with 15-20% unemployment in my area) and can’t remember having this response… or is that just my cancer brain acting up again?  Either way, I’m overwhelmed…

But… I’m not stopping here!  My team members have just as much passion for this cause as I do and deserve every ounce of energy I have to devote to fundraising with them.  Once that magic number appears in my account, every donation made through events and such will be going to them because its not about seeing how much I can raise but how much we can collectively raise for a world without breast cancer! 

Will you be the donor that gets me to that magic number?
