Katelyn's Marathon Fundraiser for MS
Katelyn's fundraiser was on Friday night at the Kinsale and it was a great success. She had about 50 people who came which was a great turnout. We enjoyed eating, drinking, talking and entering raffles. Katelyn had the following raffles:
$400 worth of Stella & Dot jewelry
$125 worth of restaurant gift cards (PF Changs, Cheesecake Factory, Texas Roadhouse, Macaroni Grille, Not Your Average Joe's)
50/50 (aka cash - I think the winner got about $125)
iPad (which was the most popular raffle)
I REALLY wanted to win the iPad b/c they are so fun but it is something I don't need and would never just buy for myself. Unfortunately I did not win BUT I did win something . . . the restaurant gift cards! So fun! I was so excited b/c I seriously never win anything. I already used one of the gift cards. My aunt and I went to see The King's Speech yesterday (which was really good) and then we ate at the Macaroni Grille. Such a fun afternoon. And the best part is that I still have 4 more gift cards to look forward to using.
Katelyn's event raised $1,556. She is well on her way to reaching her goal of raising $4,000. She is also training hard for the marathon. Yesterday she ran 18 miles with her team. Keep up the great work Katelyn!
