Hi everyone:

OH MY GOSH!!!! WHAT AN AWESOME DAY!!!!

I want to say thank you to every one that came today to help make the Meet a great Meet and a pretty successful one.

Cheri should have the final total amount of money that we raised in, hopefully, a few days. We are waiting on the donation from the River Towne Cafe' and to the folks donating to our First Giving Page.

In the next couple of weeks, I will be putting together a scrapbook from the event. If anyone took pictures, please share them with me. Please email them to me at disneymm@hotmail.com. I will make the book available to purchase from the publisher website. Just give me a couple of weeks to gather all the pictures and to put it together.

Again, thank you to everyone who joined us. I finally got to Meet a lot of Disers and that was so amazing. And thank you Pete for joining us, it truly meant a lot to us.

I hope everyone enjoyed themselves.

Ok now I am going to bed....I am exhausted.....

We had a great time meeting everyone and I think the event was a huge success. Hopefully we can do more meets in the future. Thank you to Cheri and Melissa who did a fantastic job organizing this event. They obviously put in many hours preparing for this. And thanks to Pete for taking the time to come to the meet. It was a pleasure to meet you Pete and you should truly be commended for your efforts to help raise money for GKTW.

Thanks again everyone and look forward to the next meet!

After 3 long months of keeping my big mouth shut, I can finally break my silence. Thanks to Melissa and Cheri for letting me surprise Pete.

This was a fantastic event! So nice to see old friends and make new ones. The Greyhounds enjoyed all the attention too.

This was a great day full of friendship, fun, and raising money!

Way to go Melissa and Cheri!!!

Hi Everyone:

After looking at all the pictures that were taken, that I have in my possession, there aren't enough to justify spending $25 on a scrapbook. So, I will post some pictures to share with everyone.

If you took pictures, please share.

Thanks.

Wow! The Virgina DIS Meet was wonderful. Thank you so much to Melissa and Cheri.

I cannot believe all of the stuff we got: a beautiful holiday ornament, delicious cupcakes, personalized magnets and pins, and a bag full of stuff for my son with a Chip n' Dale theme.

The love and detail you put into all of these great gifts is so touching. THANK YOU!!!!!

I also want to thank Pete for attenting the meet and providing items for the silent auction. My family was lucky enough to be able to win one of them.

And Rivertowne Cafe was so nice to allow everyone to gather in their restaurant. It was a great time and we are so glad that we could attend.

My family strongly believes in the mission of Give Kids the World and we are so pleased that we had another opportunity to show our support.

Thanks to everyone again. What a great event.

Kate

Melissa and Cheri - clearly, you put many, many hours of hard work and thought into this meet - and it paid off! If I didn't know better, I would've thought you were expert party planners!

Melissa - Thank you to your mom and dad as well. My centerpiece is proudly sitting on my table.

Of course, thanks to Pete for coming to chilly Virginia to meet with us all. Everyone knows he's the rock star of our community but was very gracious (as always) with his time and donations to the event.

Skip - what an AWESOME surprise!!! It was so good to see you again!!! And of course your mom and dad are as charming as ever. I promise I will organize those pics for your dad

It was so good to see Disers - both new to me (Hi Cathy!) and meet up with ones I've met before.

The event was a wonderful success!

HUGE thanks to Cheri and Melissa for putting together such a wonderful event! We are so glad we made the trip south from NoVa for this - it was fantastic. The girls were delighted with their bags, and we were amazed at the level of personal detail you put into making each child attending feel so special.

Skip - you pulled it off and surprised more than just Pete! It was so great to see you again.

Pete - we were delighted to meet you! Thank you so much for attending these events and adding a special touch to each one.

The auction was a blast - we have some awesome goodies - and it was wonderful to meet a slew of like-minded DISers.

XO
Liz
