    Just giving the thread a bump and showing a list of the raffle donations so far.

    shesapirate- coffee basket
    wimpy- chocolate and fudge basket
    ginamarie- ELF Cosmetics basket
    mjacklyn- details of basket TBD
    Dgthree- handmade jewelry


    If anyone else would like to make a donation towards our raffle baskets, please let me know and I will add you to the list! We are planning to sell the raffles for $5 or 3 for $10, so I would love to have a few more items to give away.

    I will have some more to add from outside sources (that's what they're telling me, anyway). Will update you ASAP.

    Woohoo, we got another mention on the podcast today! Thanks, guys! And thanks for the props! :goodvibes

    Just a correction to what was said on the podcast - the price is $40 per person, not $30. Just don't want there to be any confusion :thumbsup2 That price includes the buffet dinner, non-alcoholic beverages, tax, gratuity, and we rounded it up from $38.66 to give the rest to Give Kids the World. The event begins at 8PM.

    If you are new to this thread, and would like to join us, please send me a PM. This meet is not exclusive to cruise-goers -- all are welcome!

    AND we are still looking for donations for our GKTW raffle. Please PM Ginamarie if you would like to donate.

    We're just about 9 days out -- can't wait! :cool1::cool1::cool1:

    I just had a chance to catch up on your plans here. Great ideas! As this has become a fundraiser for GKTW, I'm going to move it to our subforum and add it to the official list of events. :)

    Keep up the great work!!

    Because this is less than a week away and I just told people where to look for it on the most recent podcast.....I'm moving this back to the main forum where people will see it.

    My pleasure!

    On a similar note, do we need some sort of containers for the tickets???

    So I went to pick up my 15-yo daughter from camp today. On the way home I said to her "I really don't think you want to do this, and as I understand it's pretty much only going to be adults and no teen-agers there, but I'm going to a DIS meet in NY next Friday and I figured I'd at least give you the option of going" - hard sell, eh?;) Well, much to my surprise she said she wants to go! And I really sort of tried to talk her out of it but all she said was "Yeah! That sounds fun!" So I sent "She's a Pirate" a PM to let her know. I'm so proud... she's such a geek... she really takes after me...

    I wish my 14 year old sister could have come. I'm sure they would have gotten along well with both being Disney nerds!

    I talked to my daughter last night & told her about the Meet & the fundraiser for GKTW. I didn't think she'd be interested in going with me (she's not a Disneyaholic like I am LOL) but she liked what I was telling her about GKTW & so she's decided to attend with me. :cool1: So I am a +1.

    Can't wait to meet you all!

    One week from now we will be arriving in NYC via train to meet y'all.

    Stuff for our basket is bought (except maybe one extra item) and fudge needs made (Thursday night).

    Can't wait, it'll be a great time.
