    I absolutely echo all that Ginamarie wrote above.

    Ginamarie. Planning this event with you was a wonderful experience, and I think we did a pretty good job for first-timers! :thumbsup2 Thank you so much! Let's hope to make this an annual event!

    I want to thank all of you for coming last night, and for your generosity. I'm still kinda blown away by the whole thing, and will write something more cogent and concise once I've had a chance to process it all...but I wanted to make sure you all know how grateful I am for the whole experience. Meeting new people, raising all that money -- just amazing!

    Kevin and John -- safe travels! Thank you SO much for coming, and for your extreme generosity. I honestly cannot thank you enough! :hug:

    I hope everyone has a great day! I'll be relaxing on the couch and trying to decide what to plan next ;)

    I forgot to mention- I didn't have my camera with me last night and know that some of you took pictures. I'd be grateful for any pictures you guys could share with me! Just PM me and I can give you my email address.

    I hardly took any photos at all. But these 2 came out OK.

    Just wanted to say we had a wonderful time - it was so much fun talking with our tablemates; meeting Kevin (sorry we didn't get a chance to say to Hi to John too but I understand there were so many people to chat with!); the food was very good; so happy we were able to raise money for GKTW, and winning the snowglobe was the icing on the cake! :woohoo:

    Thank you so much to Gina Marie and Gillian for doing an awesome job & being so welcoming! :flower3:

    Ken (kcb1dizbksfan) - just looked at the other thread with your pictures and they really came out great (one of the few I have of my daughter & I that we are both happy with :lmao:).

    For someone like me who is very shy, this was a big adventure and everyone could not have been more warm & welcoming!

    Thanks again to everyone - hope we can all do it again next year!

    Aw, that's too bad! I guess that means no delicious fudge for this meet :sad:

    Hopefully we'll have another NYC meet this summer and you'll be able to make that one! :goodvibes
