A Magical Night
Friday night, March 19th, was our much anticipated Saving Sofia Crab Feed and Silent Auction. In eight short weeks, we were able to pull off one of the most magical nights of our lives. The evening felt so much like a wedding, baby shower, christening and birthday celebration all combined together...I will call it Sofia's Welcoming Party! The love in the room was so strong. It truly was so beautiful.
There are so many people to thank as this event could not have happened without them and I'm afraid if I started a list I would most certainly forget someone and that would be devastating. Lisa Lindsey from Genetically Enhanced who also happens to be the V.P. on the Board of Directors for DSIA was the woman behind the scenes who organized and orchestrated a perfect evening. Without her and the over 40 volunteers including all my "Sisterhood" sisters and my sister in law Jennifer, none of this could have happened. Amazing and generous friends, family and strangers helped make this event a HUGE success. And I think a really wonderful evening was shared by all that attended as well.
Drum roll please........we raised a net of $17,838.19 as of today in the Sofia Adoption Fund sponsored by DSIA!!!
AMAZING! INCREDIBLE! AWESOME! OVERWHELMING! TREMENDOUS! UNBELIEVABLE! and oh so COOL!!!
Sofia, you are loved. You are wanted. You are welcomed. A very big portion of the financial aspect of bringing you home is taken care of. We are so close to reaching our fundraising goal and then we can focus all our energy in getting you here just as quickly as possible. We ALL can't wait to meet you!
