what a success!!
Talkin’ ’bout my FUNDRAISER! Whoa–successful beyond my wildest dreams!
Last Saturday night, we took over the West Seattle Senior Center and played three hours of music to a crowd of about 100 attendees. I had no idea that so many were going to come!
But thanks to wonderful publicity such as this piece, published in the West Seattle Blog, locals swarmed in.
In total, we’ve raised nearly $1600 for the MS Society, and I still have more donations coming in–still waiting to declare a final total!
Many thanks go out to a small army who helped me put this together… namely, my husband, the band who donated their time for me, in particular the band manager and his wife (who went out of their way to help organize the event and catering), some of the band spouses who pitched in, and of course… the event attendees.
I already have a list of ideas to make next year’s event bigger and better. Onward with Dance MS 2014!
