2017 Annual Fundraiser Total

By on Dec 5, 2017 in #GoodInTheWorld, Events, Fundraiser, News |

To say we are overwhelmed with gratitude is an understatement!

The total amount raised during this year’s fundraiser is $15,734! This is $3,000+ more than our 2016 fundraiser. #PeopleAreGood

Thank you again to our Event Sponsors, Event Supporters, everyone who attended the event and everyone who couldn’t make it, and still donated. What a fantastic example of #GoodInTheWorld!

In case you missed the event on November 30, I want to share here what I said that night.

This is very personal to me. And it’s hard. From my own cancer experience over the last 10 years and that I have lost count of the people I know who have died with cancer. Several friends who were at this party last year are too sick from treatment to be here tonight. My friend Kimberly’s middle school son just had his last round of chemo.
So Thank you – everyone who is here tonight supporting what we do. It means a lot. Thank you Kelli Geminn for doing all the real work in putting tonight together and for telling me to CHILL 1,000 times!!!  And I especially want to thank my husband , Joel. The Saint doesn’t get anywhere near enough credit – he puts up with my crazy AND does all the math to keep this going!”

 

Overwhelmed with gratitude,

Emily Tickle Thomas, Founder and Executive Director
