Event 2010 Charity Wrap Up

July 27, 2010

Here is the breakdown of what we were able to raise for charity during the 2010 Florida event.

We raised approximately…
$1000 for the Joe DiMaggio Childrens’ Hospital.

I didn’t get an exact figure but that is what the cafe estimated our event raised which was included in the check with other fundraising for that period to the hospital.  I do know it included:

$165 in raffle Friday @ HWD-FL
around $200 in the 2 live auctions Friday
just over $100 for the 4 silent auctions Saturday @ MIA
plus the silent auctions Friday (I didn’t get this subtotal)

We raised…
$701 for the Vitas Hospice in memory of Andy Juhl.

I was hoping to be able to recover the poster for the event (it was on the easel entering the HWD-FL cafe) and make an additional donation for it; but, it has not been found and the possibility of having another one made to “auction” has not materialized. The breakdown goes…
$245 in raffle Thursday at the pre-party
$153 in silent auction Thursday
$303 for the buttons made by Denise

Thank you to Denise for designing/making the buttons. Thank you to Lois, Paul and Carmen for selling the buttons at the event.

Thank you to all that helped in the funraising and fundraising,


A Word From Your Webmaster

July 26, 2010

Ok, in case you’re wondering, updates are coming to the website.  I know I’m behind with many of the city shots, bottle openers and the newly opened cafes and rock shops.

There’s been an unfortunate discovery of several pages that are loading particularly slow and upon further investigation, these pages are corrupt (add expletive here in reference to Microsoft products!!!).  I am attempting to fix said pages before I continue to add to the website.

Keep sending your info and pics into the regular place, I’ll get the updates up as soon as I can.  For now, I will do my best to make sure that the Latest Released shot tab on this blog is up to date!

And you know, if you happen to notice that a page is loading really slow, let me know so I can have a look at it.
