Two weeks ago, we had our Cropping for Alzheimer's fundraiser in memory of my grandma! It was a huge success and I'm excited to share the details with you today! I had 20 ladies join us for the day. They spent the day working on their projects whether it was card making, scrapbooking or preserving their memories with project life! I also had my two aunts and mom help me for the day!!
I'm happy to announce that we donated $500 in memory of my grandma to the Alzheimer's society this past week. I thought I would share some of the day with you!
Their welcome package waiting for them at their tables. At each of their spots were a little pillow gift that contain some post notes, chocolate egg and a package of crystal light drink mix. They also had their welcome package that contain 2 bingo cards, a tombow glue and the Everyday Project Life Card Collection along with the Accessories pack.
The ladies chatting with others and working on their projects.
I had a 50/50 board where when they chose a circle they got to pick out a treat bag as a way of saying thank you. Half of the proceeds went to the Alzheimers and the other half to an order for the winner! These candy bags sold out in minutes! Oh, my grandma had a sweet tooth and sure loved her chocolate! I think that is where I get my love of chocolate from!!
I had many friends donated gifts to our door prizes! Thanks to everyone that helped, it was greatly appreciated!!
One of my grandma's favourite games to play was bingo! Here is my aunt Goretta calling bingo numbers for the ladies.
My friend Nancy took this picture of my aunt Anne, my aunt Goretta, my mom and me! Thanks Nancy for capturing this picture!
Our winners for the day!! Joni won the raffle prize and Beverly won the 50/50 draw!! Congratulations ladies and have fun with your new goodies!!
Once again, I would like to thank everyone that helped out with the Cropping for Alzheimer's fundraiser and for helping make it a huge success!! My mom, and my aunts are already asking when the next one is as they so much fun with you that day!! We will be doing another crop in the fall, watch for more details in the next few months!!
Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!!
