Oh. My. Goodness. It's been ages since we have updated and it is not because we forgot about the blog....or about all our dedicated readers. It's because we forgot our email/password combination. Blogger has incredible security, I could not get on for months. Then tonight, in a moment of sheer brilliance, the email/password came to me....and here we are!!!! Lots to update on!
This summer we had two big fundraisers. One was a garage sale/lemonade stand. We had several families donate items or a percentage of their garage sale profits to us and we held a lemonade stand at the garage sale. It was a lovely day, and a successful fundraiser, what more could we ask for? We got visits from some special friends that we hadn't seen in a while and of course, our loyal supporters stopped by too! The lemonade was delicious and Jack was thrilled. The brilliant idea of the fundraiser was given to us by an amazing friend, and we have plans to make it even bigger next year!
Last weekend we hosted a lemonade stand at Rockford Memorial Hospital. And, when I say lemonade stand....I mean LEMONADE STAND!!!! They had this amazing stand that they loaned us and we sold lemonade for 2 straight hours....10 GALLONS worth! The Rockford Memorial Hospital community came out in droves and their generosity was overwhelming. We raised over $630 in just 2 hours!!! Incredible!!!
President and CEO of RHS, Gary Kaatz stops by for some lemonade.
Look at this lemonade stand, it's fabulous! Jack worked really hard selling his product to his customers, but he couldn't have done it without his loyal staff....Max, Abbie, Izzie, and Mia!
What a fabulous summer of fundraising! We can't wait to make a donation, any suggestions of where you'd like to see us donate?
