Crop for a Cure Results

Yesterday's Crop for a Cure was a huge success!!! First, I have to thank everyone who helped. There is no way I could have done this event without help!!! St. Clare's Episcopal Church let us use the fellowship hall, the St. Clare's Relay for Life team helped out and provided a delicious dinner, WACF 95.1 announced the event daily (how weird it was to hear my name on the RADIO!) and donated door prizes, the North Georgia News published my article about the benefit, our State Farm agent provided door prizes, and United Community Bank provided pens. My friends Joy, Carolyn and Nancy provided some silent auction items. I truly hope I haven't forgotten anybody! My Mom was a huge help!!!! Of course I have to thank DH and my MIL for taking care of the girls so that I could host this event.

Here are several of our scrappers cropping their hearts out. They got to wear the crown when they completed a layout, so there was some serious crown-swapping going on. The ladies who didn't get to wear the crown shall remain anonymous (protecting the guilty and all, ya know), though they did work hard on their projects!

The best news of all is that (so far) we have raised over $370 for the American Cancer Society!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOOHOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
In addition to our prizes last night, we have some more winners. Traci gets to pick out $60 in select Close To My Heart FREE products!!!!!! Sue U. gets a free Tickled Pink scrapbooking kit!!! Sue T. will have the option of purchasing an item at half price (and if she doesn't want to, I'll have my little helper choose another name from the basket). Thank you again for your generous support for such a worthy cause!


  1. Thanks, Haley, for all your hard work! I had fun and appreciate all your efforts (and prizes)!! Love ya!

  2. It looks like so much fun! I hated missing it, but enjoyed being with my family in Mta for the day. Next time...

  3. It sure was fun...but boy, was I tired at the end of the evening! I did get 3 2-page layouts ready for photos, headers, and journaling. Thanks, honey, for sponsoring this worthwhile event.

  4. WTG Haley!!!! sounds like a blast.
    You raised a TON of money!

  5. I look damn good in a crown! I just know someday i will find out I was secretely adopted as a child and i am really in line for some throne (no amy, not that kind of throne).

    I had a great time and I can't believe how quickly the time passed. Of course i never get done what I plan to, but still made progress.



Thanks for taking the time to visit and leaving me a comment!
