Thank You!

I’d like to thank everyone who came to the benefit; who donated silent auction and raffle items; who sent donations to us; who bought bracelets and magnets; and who supported us in our planning. We’re already making lists for next year’s event.

We estimate we had over 350 attend. We raised a little over $10,000. Holy. Crap. At 6:45 we had a line down the sidewalk of people waiting to get in. We had to set up extra tables, but we didn’t run out of food. The Brooks and Dunn guitar went for $500.

It was a great party. Jessica and Kelli would have loved it. There was laughing, there was crying, there was dancing, there was fried chicken. The tables was covered with bright colored tablecloths. We used pineapples, big bright flowers, fish and pompons for the centerpieces.

Pics will be posted soon, I promise. I will update with the Flickr Link.

Saliba Photography generously donated their coverage of the event. Pics will be posted on their website soon, and I will update with the login information. All proceeds from purchased photos will go to Jessica and Kelli’s fund as well.

I am overwhelmed by the support that we have been shown. I cannot begin to express my thanks.

    Kim – Sofia and I felt blessed to join everyone in celebrating the lives of your beautiful girls – I think the most amazing thing of all was seeing so many different people come together to honor them and your family – I can’t even describe it. We’ll be there next year, and every year.
    Love always,

    We wanted to say Thank You to everyone who came to the benefit- family, friends, and all. The days of the funeral were such a blur; it was nice to see all those smiling faces again, laughing and celebrating.I know the girls would have loved it!
