Yard Sales and Necklaces and Luau, Oh My!

Aloha! We're having FUNdraisers galore! Please join us on our FUNdraiser fest! Still no word on our approval or travel dates but we're getting close which means we have to fundraise like crazy. I warned you that I'd be reminding you of our fundraisers in the next few weeks, making plug after plus after plug, so please bear with me. Fundraising is all we can do right now as we wait and it is much needed. Our 2nd Yard Sale was a success. Not as busy as the first but we still raised some good money. We had many people who helped and dropped off new goods and we really appreciate your support and helping hands! It didn't rain this time and boy was it hot! I got fried! Silly me didn't even think to put sunscreen on until it was too late. All I can say is holy freckles Batman!

Our necklace sales have slowed down so please take a look and purchase one. Not only do you get a beautiful piece of jewelry but you get to wear it with pride knowing that you have helped our baby girl bloom! To see the many designs please take a look at the bottom of this blog. Prices include shipping. Only a week left to get your Stampin' Up orders in so visit stamptothemax and your purchase will benefit Susan too! And please visit our Auction For A Princess and shop til' you drop. We have over 100 items for sale and there are many that don't have any bids. Please take a look and check back frequently as there are new items still being added and bids increasing. It truly is Christmas in July. Get a jump start on your holiday shopping today.

Remember our Save the Date? August 18th? Well it is approaching very quickly and it will be a night to remember. We are hosting a Luau Party on August 18th! It will be complete with a Hawaiian dinner and dancers, music and a chance to win a week's stay in Hawaii! In order to make this a successful night, we need the continued help of our families, friends, community, co-workers. I always think big and this event is no different! We need to sell 500 tickets to make a net profit of $10,000.00. You read that correctly. If we sell 500 tickets we will profit $10K. This amount will get us so close to our lofty goal. Can we do it? YES we can!  So this is how it can work. If Mark and I can commit 50 of our friends to find 10 of their friends or family members, etc. or 5 couples, then we can reach our goal of 500. Here are the details and the invitation for the Luau.
It’s a

Sound fun? Make a donation today of $25 per person or $50 a couple and you can join us for a night to remember. Even if you're not able to attend, your purchase of a $25 ticket will get you an entry to win the Hawaii getaway. We know that we have at least 50 friends who will reach out to their friends and family to help us reach our goal. Would you like to be one of the 50? Please say yes! If so then please let us know. And if you know of anyone else who would like to be a part of this miracle then send them our way too. We need all of the support we can get and lots of effort to make it a success. If you can commit to help us then send me a message with your email address and I can email you the attachment for the invitation above. You can then print the number needed and begin selling them on our behalf to your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, etc. (Your goal will be to sell 10 individual tickets, 5 couples tickets, or collect $250.) Again, the only way that this Luau will be a success is with the help of everyone. We need your help to reach more people than we can reach alone. As you're selling or promoting this Luau Party please keep in mind and mention that if you or you and your significant other were to go out for a night of fun, including dinner then you would spend at least $25-$50. Why not spend the same amount of money for dinner, entertainment, chances to win a Hawaii getaway and the chance to help an orphan come home? Please help us! We will be forever grateful! Mahalo!
