Tara,

It has all been said by others many times over, but THANK YOU and your team for the fantastic job putting this event together! It was OUTSTANDING, especially with all the little extra touches like the table decorations, crayons and Cars themed coloring books for the kids, themed pens, stickers, etc.!! It is no wonder that you raised more than $10,000 for GKTW Village. Well Done!!

My DW and I appreciated the opportunity to meet other DISers and Kathy, Katie, Pete and Walter. The food, raffle and silent auction were great fun, too!

Paul and Mary

Hi Everyone,

Sorry it has taken me so long to post.. as you can imagine I have been recovering and enjoying the rest of the weekend with my family. I cannot thank you all enough for your kind words. Each person who attended helped us raise over $10,000 and you should all be proud of the work you have done. I had a great team of Divas, Kristin (BornTeach), Erika (Eduke98080) and her family (Tom, Victoria & Jason), Kim J (mejkjj97) , Kim D (Jacksmom99), Bill (Billtm), Brian & Tracey (doconeill & tigger813) and Mike (Buzz31) who worked so hard to make this vision a reality. There hard work and dedication to this cause is amazing. Bill said it in the begining "One Team, Same Dream" and that is what we were!!

This event would not have possible without all of you being there, all of you writing checks and without the support of Pete, Walter and Kathy. I know you all had fun but I also know the Podcast team is what got you there. When they said they were coming I was in just as much shock as all of you.

I think we met two goals though.. we raised A LOT of money for GKTW and we got a lot of people out of their comfort zone and they met some new friends. I have seen the friendships form on the boards over the last few days and everyone seems to have some new FB friends. I will be mailing GKTW a lot of money tomorrow thanks to A LOT of people and I cannot wait to get to know many of you more as time goes on.


So my only question is how are we going to top it.. what are we going to do next? We still have $950,000 to make it to 1 Million!!

Wow! I'm SO happy that so much money was raised for GKTW! I'm not completely shocked by the amount after seeing how much the dining review with John & Kevin kept increasing... The podcast team should offer more of those on Ebay. There is certainly a lot of interest!

Thumbs up

I came across a card (and pin) I received after completing one year of service with The Walt Disney Company (Disney Store to be exact). It echos what Tara wrote in a previous post. It took everybody that attended to make the event a success. Especially on a holiday weekend.

"The whole thing here is the organization. Whatever we accomplish belongs to our entire group, a tribute to our combined effort. I feel there is no door which, with the kind of talent we have here, cannot be opened." Walt Disney

I think this is true of the entire DIS community.
