This week Boston Bloggers hosted their Spring Fling Happy Hour at Highball Lounge in Boston. Emily, Kate and I used this event as an opportunity to fundraise for the MS Challenge Walk. We will be walking 50 miles in 3 days on Cape Cod. My sister-in-law, cousin-in-law and her sister are also walking. We each have to raise $1,500 or $9,000 as a team but we hope to raise $10,000!
I made the orange poster to share with everyone a little more about how our friendship developed. It says:
"From Blog Friends. . ."
"To In Real Life Friends. . ."
"Together We Will Walk 50 Miles For MS!"
Then I put photos of the three of us together, The Bean Team logo and some MS Challenge Walk brochures that gave info about the event.
The black posted was made by my mom and I've used it for previous events. It is photos of the Challenge Walk last year.

Keurig also donated a single serve coffee maker but for some reason I don't have a photo of that bag.
THANK YOU to everyone who donated. We could not have done this fundraiser without each of you. We are so grateful to all of the support we received. We had so many awesome items to giveaway and it was so fun to see the reactions of each winner!
Alison and Kate, the organizers of Boston Bloggers, who graciously offered us the idea of doing raffles at this event! These two ladies are fabulous and always put on great events.
Theresa. It was part of one of the raffles but before it went home with the winner Emily and I had to take photos with it. Fun right!?
El and a few others.
In total we raised $395 or $132 each! Not bad at all. Every little bit helps us reach our goal and we are so appreciative for every single dollar donated.
THANK YOU! If you would like to donate to The Bean Team you can do so by going to our team page. xoxo
