Birthday / TGen Fundraiser

Katie turned 10! I can't believe it's been 10 years... crazy.

 I love this 10 year-old more than anything, and about 9 months ago I contacted TGen and said I wanted to help if they had any fundraisers coming up - because they are who is helping us!  Little did I know that I would be one of the main people orchestrating this event. I am still re-couperating...

A few weeks ago we had our "Roaring for Research" 1920's Soiree that raised over $28,000 in profit! It was so much fun with casino games, food, a live band, silent auction, everyone dressed up - it could not have gone better. I think we had 250 people who attended. Besides raising money, we also raised awareness for TGen's Center for Rare Childhood Disorders and that is awesome.

 Here is the painting Katie painted that was auctioned off with seven others done by TGen kids.  I took this saying off of a shirt she has - seems so appropriate for my girl.

Here are Paul and I and our good friends at the event.
