Prizes rolling in already!

May 20, 2014

kindle and gogo pillow

I am so excited to report that less than a week after we sent out donation letters for our bridal shower/”4th Stick it to Cancer Blood Drive and Basket Raffle,” businesses and individuals already are being so generous!

Added to the list of large prizes with the Lady Gaga tickets is a Kindle Fire HD (8GB) with a camo GoGo Pillow, donated by me. We had an extra unopened GoGo Pillow at home because when we ordered Billy’s, it came with a twin. He didn’t need two, so I stored the other one still in its wrapper. I wanted to do more than put the pillow out as a prize, so I found a great Kindle to go with it!

My family also has been so supportive! Mom is storing all the baskets at her house, my sister, Mary, is organizing and creating baskets, and my aunt, uncle and cousin have made donations, too. My aunt, Kathy Trimper, is providing $25 gift certificates for use with my cousin, Christine McGinniss’ Avon business, and Aunt Kathy and Uncle John are offering a Keurig and a large bakeware set as prizes.

We have also:

-Awesome baked goods from our friends Jill Keppeler and Lisa Bell Parrish as well as family members Margeret Johnson, Mary Codick, Christine McGinnis and Aunt Liz Juszczyk.

-Many awesome baskets from Aunt Liz, cousin Becky Hernandez and the rest of the family!

-Avon gift certificates (4) and basket from cousin Christine McGinnis.

-A $50 gift card to Stuffed Chocolate in Williamsville from Gregg and Michelle Prince.

We also have received wonderful donations from the following businesses:
