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:

Celtics tickets
Bruins tickets
$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!
