I haven't written in awhile because I haven't had much to write about, which is pretty good in our world. That means Monkey has been mostly healthy, and life has been fairly normal.
I have recently started to really dig into the planning of my fundraiser. I have the location, date, and time set. If you are going to be in Columbus April 12, you should plan to attend our event at 4:00 at Alumni Club Sportsbar. I have also started to solicit items for auction and am so excited by the responses I have gotten so far.
I decided to email PR/ Community relations people for our local sports teams yesterday. I looked up each team and found the person who I thought would handle the decision to make a donation. I'm so excited by the response I got from the Columbus Crew, our Major League Soccer team. First thing this morning I received an email from him stating that he had a cousin who had CF, and he was thrilled to send us some items for auction. I guess karma, or the universe, or whoever/whatever force is out there, guided me to choose the right person to send that email to. I can't wait to see what he sends.
I have also received some generous offers from family and friends and will be hitting up some local businesses this weekend. Since this is my first time doing this, I was a little nervous, but everything seems to be falling into place.
