Shame on me for not using my good camera to take pictures at the awards this year! The pictures in this post are not the best quality- but they will have to do!
Once again the JDRF Austin Chapter out did themselves with a great awards ceremony.They make awards day almost as fun as walk day. I am always impressed!This year the theme was Hollywood. When we arrived there was a red carpet rolled out for us and the paparazzi was everywhere! The food was delicious and the atmosphere is great. The decorations are fun, parking is easy- and we love to see all those familiar faces that really understand what it is we go through on a daily basis!
Each year it seems like raising money gets harder and harder. This year- I really worked on selling our team t-shirts to help raise money. Our profit from t-shirt sales this year was $248.00! WOW! Hoping to double that next year. we would love to get a business (or add an 's) to help sponsor them. Anyone out there have any good ideas on how to get that idea rolling? Anyone interested in helping out? We love wearing our team shirts- even after the walk is over- so we promise that the shirts and your company logo will be seen by many!
This year our team total was $1, 606! Thank you so much to anyone and EVERYONE who donated! Thank you to everyone who bought a t-shirt and proudly wore it to support our team (ladies at work - I love seeing everyone in Kaci's shirts on Thursdays!) No matter how BIG or small your donation was...it makes a difference. Every penny counts. We will NEVER lose HOPE that a CURE will be FOUND!
