(very many) Polka Dotted thanks...

... to those 2 amaZing chicks that I'm privileged to call my very good friends.

I know they won't mind me copying & pasting here.

PLAY - SILENT AUCTION RESULTS
Can we just say how thankful we are to everyone of you who donated an item to us; who came and bought grab bags and bargains; who bid on our auction items; who bought raffle tickets; who called the store and made arrangements to donate this coming week; who helped us set up and clean up; who emailed and posted good thoughts on the BLOG; and to those of you who emailed us inquiring on specifics on where to mail your donation. You're aMaZing! :)

Over the last few months we raised $1059 from donations and raffles. We were so pleased, but knew we could do better. And with your help...we did! Last night's auction raised $1660, which means we have $2719 to donate to FOOTPRINTS ! Those of you who know us well...know that we are madly planning on how to raise more over this next week before the journey. Our goal is to make it to the $3000 mark...we are so close. So this week, if you are shopping in the store, purchase a few raffles tickets. If you are joining Amy for Easy Peasy on Saturday...buy some page kits, grab bags, or raffle tickets.

HUGS and KISSES to all of you for helping us change young lives.

This is a photo of us taken last night at the auction. The little guy in the photo belongs to a friend and customer of ours...Earleen. Isn't he aDorable?

Here's a photo of the table as you walked into the room last night.
Amy had a great vision with this...it really was "stunning" as our friend, Lara, would say.

Thanks again for making the NIGHT one huge success.


You'll have to check out their blog to see the pictures and for more updates.

Love, love their "pay-it-forwards"!
