    I have a suggestion to consider for the meet.

    My family and I volunteered at GKTW Village yesterday. I think it would be nice to have a few people who have done so speak for a couple of minutes at the meet. We all know what GKTW does but hearing about it from people who have seen it first hand may create an even better connection for everyone. And it might encourage others to volunteer the next time they're in the area.

    Thanks Steve. :thumbsup2
    I know there are several of us who have volunteered at GKTW and I agree this might be a nice way to connect our purpose to everyone at the event.
    We will keep this in mind!!

    I don't know why I "forgot" about the NJ Meets! We drove past the Flemington Perkins where we attended a NJ Meet/GKTW fundraiser a few years back. My daughter was super excited to see it and reminisced about the event-- she had won a pin set and a GKTW Candyland game.

    Little did I know that it expanded into a whole weekend of events!
    I may have to work (Rutgers Day is always the last Saturday of April), but
    I can donate prizes!

    Hi :wave:
    Our Perkins Meet was in 2011 and was just the beginning for the NJ DIS Meets! That was fun- but proved to be way too small a venue for us.

    The 2015 Meet will be our 3rd weekend event in the Somerville Elks banquet hall in Somerville - and we are planning for it to be bigger than ever!! We have more capacity this year! So do plan to come.

    The Saturday Main Event (April 25)- with silent and raffle ticket auctions, lunch and a (very likely) a Podcast recording - is just one of the ways to meet & greet other Disney fans while raising money for Give Kids the World that weekend.

    We will have events planned for Friday & Saturday evenings as well and some other ideas we will announce in the coming months.

    And we're not that far from the Rutgers main campus- maybe you can join us for some of the fun!!

    Thanks for the info!

    I know the area well-- I used to shop at the Target near the hotel weekly until they built one closer to me.

    I'll try to make it!
