There were casino games, drawings, auctions, and gift bags as well as a live band and a GREAT spread of food! The fundraiser was very family friendly, with activities for "kids" of all ages! Thanks to my cousin Cherie for being an AWESOME mistress of ceremonies, and to my uncle for keeping the wine flowing all evening! Donations are still coming in and if you'd like to contribute you can email Pam Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org ; please make checks payable to ACS.
Undoubtedly, cancer has touched millions of lives in one way or another. It's a devastating and tragic disease that affects people of every age and walk of life. As you all know from my previous posts, I've been working with the Haskins family whose son is battling childhood cancer; my aunt and uncle just lost a dear friend two weeks ago to cancer. Our dream is that the money that is raised every year at the Friends of Day Valley ACS fundraiser will make finding a cure for cancer a reality in the VERY near future! Aunt Pam and Uncle Bob, thank you for letting me be part of it and asking me to capture the event for you! I'm very proud of both of you!!!
