Awesome event

Today was crazy. We have some friends that were in a terrible car accident a few months ago, so I decided to put on a fundraiser BBQ. When I told my 14 year old niece, she asked to do it, so that she could use the service hours for girl scouts and young women through church. I was thrilled. It has been a ton of work, mostly for her and her mom. Today was the big day, and I spent all day (as did she and her mom) working on it. Finally, our awesome BBQers came and rocked, cooked a great meal, and we sold 45 tickets, raising $1700 for the family. Isn't that awesome! So many people helped out buying tickets, making donations. So many local businesses, too. Trader Joes, Tahoe Joes, Hometown Buffet, Albertson's, Vons, SLO Fresh Market, Costco, San Luis Sourdough, Smart and Final, Kiwanis Club, San Luis Coastal Unified School District, Wade Brown Construction. I am so thankful for the charity that people have in them.
