    We are 10 days from the Indianapolis Disney Meet to benefit the Power of 10 - Give Kids the World Challenge! With so many 10s I figured it's time to do my best David Letterman impersonation and compile the top 10 reasons why you should attend this year's Indianapolis Disney Meet.

    10. 10 is a powerful number - Come to the meet and help us make 10 even more powerful. 10, 10, 10!
    9. The DIS and the Walt Disney World Moms Panel share the same charitable mission - Give Kids the World.
    8. Even though India"nap"olis is called "Nap" town we still have the time and energy to throw one heck of a Disney Meet.
    7. We've teleported Dole Whip machines from Aloha Isle to the Indianapolis Disney Meet for your taste enjoyment.
    6. Real Disney characters? Well not really, but cardboard cutouts are the next best thing.
    5. Free swag, free chachkis, and free admission plus a shot at some fantastic prizes. Our meet makes the 'Price is Right' envious.
    4. Bringing Central Florida to Central Indiana - Lots of Disney experiences, Disney fun, and Disney prizes without all the humidity. It's not "Animal Kingdom hot" here.
    3. Shhhh! <whispers> there's a "silent" auction, but it can't be too "silent" or else no one will know about it. <continue normal speaking volume>
    2. There will be a ton of food and drink at the meet, but belching is strictly prohibited. Please use the exit doors is you feel the urge.
    And the number 1 reason why you should attend this year's Indianapolis Disney Meet....
    1. The Indianapolis Disney Meet is centrally located for your travelling pleasure. Indy isn't called the "Crossroads of America" for nothin'.

    Hands go up in the air and the band plays.....

    See you at the meet! :)

    Hi Everyone,

    The meet is fast approaching, this Saturday Sept 3rd. A couple things I wanted to mention.

    - Don't forget to bring a food item to share with other guest at the meet.
    - Representatives from the Walt Disney World Moms Panel will be at the meet. Feel free to ask them any questions you may have about the Moms Panel registration process which is set to open in a few weeks.
    - The meet will start promptly at 1:00PM. We will be awarding prizes at the top of every hour. The silent auction will start at 1:00PM and end at exactly 5:00PM. The meet will end at 6:00PM.

    I've updated the attendee list and we now have over 100 people who've signed up. Attending the meet is free so if you are in the area and need a Disney fix please stop by. Please continue to spread the word. Looking forward to seeing everyone this Saturday. :wizard:

    Just received A very generous donation from a co-worker who I introduced to Give Kids the World and the Indy Meet. Our fundraising efforts are off to a great start. :woohoo:

    I've setup a First Giving page for anyone who wishes to make a contribution before, during, and after the Indy Meet. If you can't make this years meet please consider making a tax deductable contribution.

    Thank You! :)

    Kelly & I (LutheranChick82 & Chefmickey123) will not be able to attend this year, but will be there next year. I will be in my last year of seminary at Ft. Wayne and her folks live in Indy.

    We are out of town on our my intership now.

    Can't wait, and by that point in time we will be less than 9 months from our next WDW trip.

    GKTW Rocks!
    :hippie:

    Hi Everyone,

    I'll be at the meet venue around 8:00AM to start setting things up. We could always use additional help setting up if anyone wants to come out early. I promise not to overwork you. :)

    Okay - Last chance to spread the word about tomorrow's meet.

    There's usually a few family's who don't hear about our meet until it's too late. Spread the word. :)

    We are giving away lots of great prizes. I'm sitting hear looking at hundreds of dollars in Disney gift cards... :) Admission to the meet is free which means you could come to the meet, have a great time, possibly win a great prize, and have a Dole Whip all at no cost to you. If you are in the area please consider stopping by and supporting the DIS's Power of 10 - Give Kids the World Challenge. A great time will be had by all. We hope to see you there! :goodvibes

    Be sure to like our Facebook page so you can see live photos and updates from the meet. I'll also be posting live photos on this thread as well.
