Fundraising Success!!!

I am beyond happy to report that our Stamp For Autism Fundraiser was a HUGE success!  Not only was it a fun day filled with stamping, food and friends but we had raffles galore!  We had everything from gift certificates, gift baskets, flower planters and everything in between!!
We had 3 tables FULL of raffle baskets!  We had Scentsy, 31, Meat Market Gift Certificates, Jamberry, Tastefully Simple, Jewlery, Brewery Gift Certificates, Winery Certificates, a HUGE UTZ basket, succulent planters, flower planters, Tupperware, a handmade wrought iron card rack (made by my amazing husband!) and so much more!!!  
Lunch was delicious!  Sandwiches, salad and soup!  
Door prizes every 30 minutes!  7 beautiful projects to create!
A room full of happy stampers was the result! 
I made a deal with my fellow demonstrators, that if we sold this event out, which we did!!!, I would wear a tutu...and of course as you can see above, I held true to my promise!
So much laughter and fun came together to create some beautiful projects while raising money for a wonderful charity!  Our charity of choice was The Amazing Kids Club.  You can see more information HERE about this wonderful program here in our community!
Of course the most exiting news of all is how much we raised...I'm sure you are just dying to know right!?!  Well....drumroll please......we raised a grand total of just over.....
Maybe I'm biased, but I think we did an awesome job!  Demonstrators came together and donated product to create the projects and other supplies needed, Business owners generously offered goods and services for our overflowing raffle tables and the Fraternal Order of Eagles in Hanover graciously allowed us to use their banquet room and made us a lovely meal from which they will donate all fees!!!  Events like these make my heart just swell with pride not only for the people who put it together, but for the people who take the hard earned money from their pockets and time from their busy lives to take part in serving our community.  

Thank you from the bottom of my heart to each and every person who helped make this event such a success from demonstrators to customers and everyone in between!  You each had an important role in making this an amazing event, and know that your contribution makes a difference in the lives of children in our community!  The Amazing Kids Club will be able to delegate the money raised for programs to help autistic children live happier lives, and you were a part of that!  
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
