Today's post will once again be about our Black Eyed Sally's fundraising event. Yes, I KNOW that it's taking me awhile to get through just one evenings events, but it really wasn't just a "one evening" thing. So much planning, work, fun, stress, and did I mention FUN--went into this event for weeks before the actual March 14th fundraiser! So many people helped me get to that day--Laurie Forcellina, Judy Lackey, Mary McManus, hubby Ray, Sundance Kidz, our Team Hole in the Wall family, and many more good folks!
3 Questions and a Cabin Chat with Pam Robbins , then you know that a young woman named Amanda is one of the reasons that the Robbins family continues to work so hard to help raise awareness to --and money for, The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp.
Amanda very graciously agreed to come to our event and speak a bit about Camp and it meant so much to me to have her there!
As I said in the 3 Questions and a Cabin Chat blog post--I met Amanda several years ago on a visit to Camp and I knew after talking to her for a very short time--that I would ALWAYS stay involved with this amazing Camp in some way! The video clip below is the one that I recognized Amanda from, the first day that I saw her at Camp. Please watch and you will KNOW how special this young woman is--and how special this Camp is. Amanda is a few minutes into the video, but the entire video is SOOO worth a few minutes of your time. In addition to the amazing Amanda--there is a young man and his family in the beginning of this clip that we have come to know, in fact--we saw Aaron's Mom and his brother at Camp on Sunday! Aaron was busy and couldn't make it--but he is about to graduate college and enter law school!! PLEASE WATCH!
Amanda Garbatini---YOU ROCK!!!
PS. We are SOOO close to reaching our goal of $10,000 and I truly feel in my heart that we can DO IT!! After hearing about this amazing Camp and how much it means to so many children and their families--won't you please consider making a donation ? Even $10 or $20 will make a difference! Thank You!
