When Uncle John called Aunt Cookie to tell her about the event, he said - "Imagine going to the best fundraiser you've ever attended....and double it..."  There aren't enough words to describe it - awesome, amazing, fun, superb, fantastic - from the music, the food, the silent auction items, the raffle girls, the attendance, and of course - emcee Erin.  It was by far one of the best nights of our life - so fun, so much love, so much generosity. Nate and I stayed up until 3:30am talking about the evening and how much fun it was.
 
It was overwhelming to see the amount of people that attended. Simply amazing. We are so blessed to live in a community that is so supportive, so giving.
 
COMBINED WITH THE OTHER MONEY WE HAVE RAISED - WE HAVE ENOUGH MONEY FOR ONE EAR. $50,000!!!! AMAZING!!! 
 
Thank you friends. Thank you family. Thank you strangers. We are so humbled. Because of you, Manny will not have to go through as many surgeries and he will come back in May from surgery with a fully reconstructed right ear.
