I lead a pretty awesome fundraising team for LLS’ Light the Night. I remain happy and blessed that I have been able to get involved with an organization that makes a difference. When my mother passed away in 2009… I never imagined that it would give me the motivation to do something like get involved with a fundraising effort. I know they are not mutually exclusive.. I’d give anything to have mom be in remission and here with us everyday. Anyways, I’d like to tell you a little bit about the party I threw for my fundraising team yesterday
Our fundraising team, Team Cindy’s Stars, has fundraised over $11,000 toward the battle against blood cancers in the past four years we’ve fundraised. I think that is an AMAZING accomplishment and I couldn’t be more proud. We started with a little group of family which turned into about a troop of 20 with both family and friends. I love it!
I decided to have a lunch party to introduce the fundraising events of the year. I was really lucky to be in touch with our LLS coordinator who came to the event and helped get all of the supplies together for our team. I’m excited to share with you what foods we made for the event (coming soon!) and some of the special touches we made too.
Our lunch party included drinks, food, and desserts. We had team supplies all ready to go for our team members and we even recruited a couple friends to walk with us this year that haven’t before (ps.. we love you!). We had a few raffles and raised $65 as an initial team donation!
I’ve volunteered for LLS in the past and am just really excited about everything this year. If you aren’t sure about putting yourself out there for a worthy cause… just jump in! There is nothing more rewarding.
