I posted on Facebook but I am going to say it again here too..

It is always an amazing thing when virtual strangers pull together for a common cause and become great friends in the process. Thank you New Jersey for a great weekend and congratulations on raising big money for Give Kids the world!! My friends and I are looking forward welcoming you all to New England in June!!

It was great to meet everyone. Thank you to those who put the weekend together, those who donated items for auctions and raffle prizes, and everyone who came and made it a great day.

Can someone post a link to the Facebook page? I didn't get on that before the meet but would love to see what pictures were taken.

Thank to Linda and Nikki for running the show.

Thanks to Pete, Corey, Julie, Shaun, Teresa, Kathy, Dustin and Craig for making the trek to the Garden State, recording a podcast and hanging out with us. It was a special weekend.

Thanks to everyone who attended and made the event a success.

Props to Kevin in the Tastycake challenge. I will avoid them forever.

Bowling? What was I thinking? But it was fun.

Hope everyone had fun and left with stories to tell. However, if any of those stories involved the hotel bar, they should remain in the hotel bar.

What a weekend! Even though it feels really good to be home, I'm all smiles about what was accomplished over the past few days. New friendships were formed, old ones were solidified, and a LOT of money was raised for Give Kids the World. Along with being an extremely successful fundraiser, I found myself sitting back and completely taking in all of the smiles on everyone's faces; I'm so glad that everyone enjoyed themselves. What a truly magical event this has been!

I am so extremely excited about the amount of money we raised, and want you to know that it will be announced at some point during the next few days. We need to just check over it one more time, but I can tell you this: Jersey, you did good!

What was everyone's favorite memory from this weekend?

Mine was just sitting back and watching everyone have a good time. It really touched me to see EVERYONE feel included, smiling, and happy. That was #1 for me (along with raising some BIG BUCKS!!!!).

It was great to meet everyone and raise money for a great cause but I'll have to admit that for me, the best part was meeting the podcast crew.

Send one of us a friend request on FB. I think that could be why.
