karen & I met yesterday to draw the winners for the quilt and duffel bag. like last year, we did our drawing the old fashioned way with strips of paper in a bowl. for the quilt, we had one strip for every $25 donated. 114 strips all together. I cut and karen drew...
woohoo! lisa bryan. we are delighted. lisa is a friend, tennis teammate, breast cancer survivor and major inspiration for us. we wore her name on our shirts last year.
and for the bag, we had one strip for every donation. 33 in total. karen drew...
same as last year, these two live close by, so we are hoping for an in-person handoff. maybe all four of us together?! stay tuned.
we also received another donation - my friend and knitting student liza saw me tuesday and asked about the walk, and about our fundraising. I told her it was all wonderful and we'd raised $2,495 - just $5 short of our goal. she opened her bag and handed me $5. (thank you again, liza!) which means....
|(remember we transferred $1,000 to my account just before the walk)|
YES, we reached the $2,500.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!
truly, our friends and family are the BEST!
