Do you have a retreat or big event you look forward to every year?

I do have a big event that I look forward to every year now! Last year we attended Katie Weis Memorial Foundation, which is for a little girl that passed away. She was struck by a car when she was only 9 in September of 2004. Last year was the first year we went and I loved it. Especially the fact that the whole fundraiser went towards scholarships for students graduating from high school!

There were all kinds of venders there, Mary Kay, Avon, Creative Memories and a bunch of other ones! We had lunch and dinner. There were also silent auctions for soo many different gifts from Bath and Body Works, Creative Memories, and Pampered Chef. We also had door prizes and raffles throughout the day as well! Me, my sister, and my mom went, it was from 10am til 9pm. It was a load of fun. It was a Hawaiian theme last year. We are curious to what the theme will be there is year!

Also, they made about $3,000 from the silent auctions, the payment to get in which was $35 in advance and $40 at the door. Along with what the vendors donated to the foundation. Plus on top of it all, Wal-mart matched whatever they made, so they made almost $6,000 for the scholarships! It was great!

So, yea, me, my sister, and my mom are defintely looking forward to the big event in February, plus she said it gives her time to spend the day with her daughters doing something we all love to do, without interruptions from the
