53 days and counting…
We are so close to the 2009 Breast Cancer 3-Day. Only 53 days left—we’re into some serious long training walks and winding down with tentmates, t-shirt orders and final fundraisers. Last night was a biggie for us. We packed 24 Seconds in Berkley, MI with a fun crowd, a great atmosphere on the upstairs deck and a great buffet. And the owner of 24 Seconds nearly doubled his donation with an $800 dollar donation to the Breast Cancer 3-Day. It had all the makings of a great night—really good weather, reasonable food cost, easy to plan and even easier to promote. Best of all, it was totally fun—like having a big outdoor party at my house without the cooking or cleaning.
Our next biggie is approaching quickly in a little under 3 weeks. It’s going to be a great night with great food, great auction items and great raffle items. And nearly every item is a donation so almost the entire money brought in for the event will go directly to the Breast Cancer 3-Day.
With all of our donations and our fundraising, we’ve topped $40,000 to date. And although, I refuse to change my $85,000 team goal, I’m thinking we may not make that much this year. I’ve always learned to aim high though and that’s what I’m doing.
And it’s not too late to join in the fun. If you live in Michigan, come join Ta Ta Breast Cancer. We’d love to have you walk with us and join in the fun first hand. If you’re not in Michigan, find a team near you and experience the weekend of a lifetime.
