Event Success!

Greetings friends! I am happy to announce that we had an awesome 11th Anniversary Celebration last Friday. We raised 10K for Project Smile and had an awesome turnout. I was so happy with how the event went. The ballroom looked so pretty as well. We decorated with tons of stuffed animals which made it look wonderful. My sister Eve helped with the setting up the auction items so they were displayed well and Marcy, our awesome volunteer helped to get the balloons. We had more balloons than usual and saved $175 by getting them ourselves. Katelyn Flint from NECN filled in for news anchor Steve Aveson and she did a lovely job as our guest speaker. Our host Dick Ferrucci was amazing as always- he does the live auction as well and he is the best at it. He is awesome at getting people to bid and it is so entertaining to watch him work the crowd as well. The guests love him. Here are some photos from the event. You can check them all out on our Facebook page, photos courtesy of Clark Linehan: 11th Anniversary Celebration photos

Thank you so much to everyone who donated, sponsored, attended and volunteered. I really appreciate everyone's support who made this event a success. It wouldn't have been possible without the kindness and support from so many people. From the bottom of my heart, thank you!

On that note, I'm off to eat my grapefruit and catch up on some work. Until next time friends...
