I don't think we could have bought better weather than what we are getting today, must be a gift from Bawb.

Thanks so much, Tara and "elves"! We weren't able to attend the BBQ, but enjoyed the movie and the atmosphere. My daughter was particularly proud of answering the Snow White trivia question! It was nice to see so many people come out for a great cause.

Just talked to Pete

Just got off the phone with Pete.

He is BLOWN AWAY by this event. Not only that they raised over $10,000 for Give Kids the World but also in how well everything was run.

A BIG congratulations to Tara and all her helpers who helped organize and run the event.

Thank you to all that attended and donated!!!

Who's the next group/city to step up and organize an event like this?

Well, the Jerzy Meet is in the works and just two weeks away. I don't think we can match what Tara did though!

AMAZING! Congratulations to Tara and everyone who helped organize this event.

The Indy Meet is over Labor Day weekend. There will also be a special meet in Orlando on Monday evening 10/3. Let's keep the momentum going!

What a terrific time we had. Great movie, great food, got to see some old DIS friends, as well as make some new ones...what more can anyone ask for??!! And to think that we raised over $10,000!!! Incredible.
It was so great to see our Orlando friends here.....Pete, Walter, Kathy and her dd Katie....just terrific.
Thanks for such a fun time.

I'm now back at my hotel and getting ready for the night, but wanted to give a shout out to everyone who helped plan the event. It was truly amazing! I don't think there was a single detail that somebody wasn't on top of! I especially thought that all the kids activities were brilliant! The little books at each table were fun for both kids and adults! I bow down to the organizational capabilities of the planning divas!

Overall it was a great time! I enjoyed the movie, but especially enjoyed the Toy Story short at the front of the movie. It was also nice to converse with Disers in person at the movie and during the BBQ.

I'm so glad I made this trip! It was more than worth the ride up from NYC! And it was really nice to see how gorgeous Western MA is. It was a really beautiful ride up this morning!

Thanks again to everyone that made this event happen!
