Thank you to all who worked so hard today. My mother-in-law passed away this week from cancer. This morning was a wonderful diversion. We are still coping with our loss, we needed today. Forgetting for a moment and laughter are priceless. Thank you again for all of you who worked so hard for such a wonderful cause.

I know I didn't have a chance to speak to many people today seeing as I just made it to the movie.

I am trying to figure out who the woman was that I spoke to that we both said each other looked familiar.

It was great to talk to the few that I did, Lisa and Mike, Evelyn, Tara (thanks for the big hug!!) and others that I didn't get names of.

10k !!!!!

Val & I wanted to say we had a great time at the event today. It was a lot of fun meeting friends, new and old. It didn't look like we had anybody hiding int he corners as everybody seemed to be chatting with someone. Glad some you came out of your shell.

A special thanks to Tara and her Diva's for pulling this together. Obviously a lot of work went into organizing the event and it all came off very nicely.

Just blown away at the fact that the event raised over $10,000 for Give Kids the World.

I wish I could have talked to more people! I only got a chance to speak to a few - I think I sat for about 2 minutes at the BBQ! My feet feel like I've been at Disney with all the running around.

Wasn't someone supposed to bring a tiara for me to wear so I could be a real diva?

You definitely WOULD have been noticeable with the tiara Doc .

I think my favorite moment is when Tim's daughter won the raffle and was jumping up and down screaming, causing Pete to want everyone else to do the same when they one

Amazing job to Tara, and everyone else involved in organizing the event. $10,000!!! Wow!!! Up to this point, we had raised a little over $27,000 for GKTW, and you raised a third of that with one event! Just amazing. Congratulations, and thank you!!!

Thank you Tara and Divas, we had such a blast today - and I was so STOKED to win the Dunkin Donuts door prize.

I met so many great people today, and will always remember that GKTW segment at the beginning of the movie. Inspiring.

Congratulations and thank you again from Dan, Nancy, Rachel and Matt Taylor.

Had a nice time chatting with your wife Val.....she was really quite funny. Didn't mind my cutting in line at the name tag table at all.

I saw you Doc, turned to say something to someone and when I turned around, you were gone again. Meant to say hi, just never got a chance.

I am still in a state of bewilderment.
I met Pete, Walter, Kathy, Amy, Robin, Katie, Victoria and the wonderful Madeline. I met Disers AND we raised that much money - wow!

Tara, you should be so proud of yourself and your helpers - and thank you
