Crafty Mommies on a Fundraising Mission

2009 Spring Fundraiser February 15, 2009

Filed under: Crafting for a Cure Events — craftingforacure @ 5:23 pm

It’s that time of year again….we’re ready to start our crafty fundraising  efforts!  Last year’s event was a great success and we were so happy to have made a contribution to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.   In keeping with the spirit of aiding those organizations who greatly impact the lives of our children and so many others, we’ve selected Every Body Counts Physical Therapy as the focus of our 2009 Fundraiser. EBC Physical Therapy is a full service Outpatient Clinic specializing in integrating Hippotherapy into treatment plans.  Additionally, EBC offers Theraputic Riding lessons and the Healing Touch technique as part of their integrated approach to patient care.

What a fabulous time we had hosting our 2nd Crafting for a Cure Fundraiser this past weekend! A whopping $1,683 was raised and we couldn’t be more proud!  We had a really great group of ladies join us for a day filled with crafting, food, fun and tons of charity! In addition to the usual crew of paper loving scrapbookers, we were happy to welcome some new knitting, quilting, and sewing friends. Our raffle table was a huge hit and it was so nice to see the raffle bags fill up with tickets throughout the day. Some of our lovely friends even stopped by for a visit and to stock up on raffle tickets! Our hearts are so full right now and we want to thank everyone 1,683 times for helping to support our cause, and especially for helping us honor Miss Erin!
