Just wanted to share with you guys the results of the Relay for Life event. My co-worker told me that the event as a whole raised over $47,000! Isn't that great?! (I did read an article that said the event raised over $134,000...but that might have been for multiple days/events or something.) Either way - I think that's awesome. Of that amount, her team alone raised $1,200! And Jovalee was a part of that! Isn't that cool!?
For their raffle, they had a gift basket, one of those presto-chango purses (you know the ones - where you can change the shell..?) which another co-worker donated, and they sold guesses for a "how-many-jelly-beans-are-in-the-jar" game. And Jovalee, of course. $1,200. I was so happy for her and her cause. And proud. For them and her...and me. :) I teared up when she was telling me all about it and how much fun and success they had last weekend. Hoooray for good people doing good things!!
