Yesterday was a big day, we made our biggest donation yet, 28 stuffed animals to Rush Children's Hospital. This donation was very special to us as Jack has had several surgeries at Rush, including his first one when he was only 6 weeks old. Because of the swine flu, visiting restrictions are very tight so we basically dropped the bears off at a loading dock to the child life specialists and she took care of the rest!
We have been asked to participate in a vendor fair in Leaf River on November 21st. This is very exciting, there are many vendors that will be donating an item to us and we will sell raffle tickets for the items. There will be vendors selling authentic jerseys, jewelry, candles, and much more! All of the money we make will go towards our efforts to support the Rockford Memorial Holiday Toy Drive. If you want to help, please stop by....if you can't make it and want to buy raffle tickets, let me know.
Saturday, November 21st 10am to 3 pm.
Leaf River Complex, 605 Main Street
Raffle tickets are $1 a piece or $5 for 6 tickets.
