Parade and Benefit

My awesome friends here in Derby offered to hold a benefit for me and my family to help with medical expenses. In order to get the word out about the benefit, my friend, Amy, offered to do a float for our local Derby Days parade. The theme was “Hang 10 in 2010” so Amy did a surfer theme for our float. We had these amazing posters made for the sides of the float. They turned out wonderful!










The benefit was held on June 19th. There was a spaghetti supper, silent auction, a band, a bounce house and games for the kids. We had a wonderful turnout, around 250 people were able to come and quite a bit of money was raised to help with medical expenses. Huge thank yous to everyone that was able to come and show your support! We truly appreciate it.

wish i could have been there.

Do you have any more shirts available? I got something on mine and I think I shrunk it a bit in the laundry...let me know, as I may need to order a pink, size large instead of a medium.
