~Hope For A Cure~
The "Gifts From the Heart Boutique", that I participated in last Sunday was a huge success. Its proceeds benefit the "Drew's Beads" program at the Cleveland Clinic Children's Hospital Cancer Center. It raised $11, 978.65.... up from last year....so that this wonderful program can continue another year. Read more about it here. I was honored to be a part of such a worthwhile benefit.
A huge thank you to all my customers who graciously bought raffle tickets, decorative bags made by the children in cancer treatment, and their generous donations. I saw many old customers....and met a whole lot of new ones.
The Cheeky Monkeys were a GREAT hit!! There were lots of "Oh my God.....look at those monkeys!". I'm happy to report that they are happily living in new homes scattered around Ohio! I know they'll make a lot of people smile!
And so....here's to next year's benefit....and to the hope that there will be a cure, so that fewer children and adults suffer and die from this horrific disease.
