Thank you! and MORE!

The golf outing yesterday was a WONDERFUL day!! The weather was perfect, everyone had a great time and we raised some money for Jack's Fund. Thank you so much to everyone who helped/participated/donated/bought raffle tickets!

It really is a beautiful golf course, and yesterday it was even more beautiful because it was just swarming with butterflies. Everywhere, butterflies, people couldn't stop commenting on them. Last year there was a rainbow. This year there were butterflies. My Jack, he always sends something to let us know he's there.

This is what was in the program to tell what's been going on with the Jack Fund:

"Jack’s Fund has had an exciting year, reaching out to help numerous New Jersey families including one with severely premature triplets, as well as a hugely successful Christmas Toy Drive benefiting the Children’s Hospital of New Jersey. We also began partnering with St. Joseph’s Healthcare System to help us identify children and families who could most use our help.

Big things are in store for the future including The Second Annual Christmas Toy Drive and a 5k Family Fun Run/Walk in the spring. We hope to see you all there!"

The winner of the raffle - the trip to Prince Edward Island was one of my husband's fellow firefighters, a great golfer who we know will really enjoy the prize. And the winner of the television was someone who bought her raffle tickets on line and was literally the LAST tickets I sold through Paypal. We're thrilled for her too! Thank you to everyone who purchased a ticket, if you haven't received your stub yet they're in the mail.

BUT....we're not done giving away great prizes. Unfortunately this one is only for people in New Jersey. But if you live in the area this is a FABULOUS AMAZING PRIZE. It was too good to just give away or even have a silent auction for at the golf outing. I wanted everyone to have a chance at winning this, so we are having another raffle!
