We had our fundraiser for Aubrey Opdyke today and it was a huge success! The news story said it was thanks to me, but they had that wrong! It took so many people to make this day happen. My dear friend, Holly, was actually the mastermind behind the idea of doing a fundraiser for the family and she presented it to our Palm Beach County Mommies of Multiples group. We all embraced the concept, but struggled with exactly what to do....a bake sale, donations? We were stumped until I heard that Chick-Fil-A hosted fundraisers and I suggested that. Holly loved the idea so we decided to pursue that. That was the week Holly had a house full of sick kids, so I made the phone calls and the contact with Chick-Fil-A's Jen Brown, who is the Marketing Director at the Palm Beach Lakes and Okeechobee locations. She was terrific and she took care of all of the logistics at the store. Holly and I did the marketing for the event and spread the word with the help of Holy Cross Preschool, where Hope Opdyke is a student, and many others. Thanks to everyone who participated in this special day. It was wonderful to know that we were coming together to help a family in need.
