Thank you Miss Sara & Steph!!!
The Relay was a BLAST!!! The weather could not have been better, and the turnout was fantastic. At last count our team raised .... drum roll please ....
.... $12,000!!!!! WOW!
Thanks to many of you and our friends, neighbors and family, we contributed nearly $2000 to that total. That's the most we've ever raised for this event, and I am truly grateful to all of you who chipped in (either for me or for someone else that you supported!!).
The kids and I got home around 1 am on Sat. DH stayed overnight @ the Relay. DS was supposed to stay out there, but he decided that he really wanted to sleep in his own warm bed at home. :lol:
We had a couple of surprise visitors while we were there. One of the medical students that we've befriended @ the hospital came out with a friend of his. They ended up staying most of the evening & we had a great time with them. At around midnight, my DH ran into one of our our neighbors and his two young sons. They had decided to come over and check out what was going on -- at MIDNIGHT! :lol:
Overall, it was a great event. If I can get my ducks in a row, I'd like to hold some fundraising events (a Knit-a-Thon perhaps???) between now and next year's relay and organize my own team as I've done in the past. I'd love to have some knitters involved!!
