Jodi Bean's Fundraiser for MS - Photos FINALLY!!!

I can't believe I haven't posted these pictures yet from my fundraiser that was on November 12, 2010. Not sure how I forgot to do this but here we go. . . there are a lot of pictures so I put them into collages. Special thanks to Tim and Anna Burns from Burns Pictures who graciously donated their time to take all the pictures at the event. They did a great job and I'm so thankful to them b/c they captured all the special moments of the night and I didn't have to worry about a thing. They also donated a free sitting including all the pictures on DVD and my friend Noelle "won" that. I know she is looking forward to using it soon.

At the sign in table there was plenty of information about MS including how to sign up for the Boston Walk and the Challenge Walk! Guest made a donation to get in and then were entered into a raffle for a McFadden's gift certificate!

There was plenty of food! We enjoyed yummy appetizers from McFadden's and sweet desserts made by Kendall, Katelyn, Meghan, Jenn, Joana and my mom! Thanks guys!

The silent auction was a big hit. There were so many different items that there really was something for everyone! People kept busy all night bidding for their favorite items.

At the end of the Meghan Brewer and I announced the winners. We had a lot of happy people. Thanks to everyone who donated an item for the auction and thanks to all of you who bid on items. All the money raised has been donated toward my fundraising efforts for the Boston Walk.

I was so thankful to all of my friends who came to the event. It was so nice to have so many people show up and give their support. It was such a fun night. I just wish it had been longer so I would have had time to chat w/ everyone more.

Last but not least - special thanks to all of my family. I appreciate all of your continued support and your help to make my first ever fundraiser a huge success.

The event raised $2,347!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And the fundraising has only just begun. Hopefully this is just the start of another very successful year of fundraising for The Bean Team.

If you would like to make a donation to me please go here. Thank you!
