Well, the Charity Fundraiser Party was a total success. The food was great, the Wii Sports competition was tough and auction bids were generous. In the end we reached our goal of $2000 net profit from the evening. The money will help CTYL expand our giving programs for the year 2008.
Thank you to all who attended and especially all those who helped us make this a successful event!

Well, due to the Snow on the 1st, we had to reschedule our Charity Fundraiser. So we’ll now be holding it on January 19th, 2008 at the same time, in the same place. We’ll be expanding our auction in the meantime and inviting even more people to attend. We’ll see you all there!

Well, it started snowing about an hour ago. And it’s coming down pretty good. In the meantime we’re planning on having our Charity Fundraiser Party and Auction in Bellevue tonight….
EDIT: We had to cancel the Fundraiser due to the snow. It snowed from 1pm through 6pm and then again later in the evening continuing until Sunday morning. It seemed prudent to keep people off the roads. So we will reschedule the Fundraiser for January most likely. This will also give us time to increase our marketing and get even more people to attend.
I bought a new suit that I planned to wear to the Fundraiser. It’s the first suit I’ve ever owned. For those thinking about buying a suit for whatever reason, I recommend The Mens Wearhouse. The staff was great and their prices are pretty good. I still blew about a grand, but I got the suit along with 7 shirts, 5 ties, shoes and a belt. Plus a little tailoring on the suit.
