Parents' Quest for the Cure a Huge Success!

What an event! I was on the silent auction committee and am proud to say we exceeded our goal and raised $49,500 for the silent auction alone! The whole event raised $225,000, which goes towards pediatric cancer research. This is an event started by some Moms on a mission to do something about childhood cancer. What amazing work they are doing!

Troy and I were also lucky to get offered tickets to sit at a table of Kids Cancer Care parents thanks to a sponsor. It was an amazing and emotional night. A brave girl told her story about surviving childhood cancer when she was 4, it was so touching to hear it from her perspective. Here is a link to a Kids Cancer Care video they played at the event. These are all stories about Calgary and southern Alberta families. I don't know about the rest of the room, but there wasn't a dry eye at our table!

I wanted to send a thanks to my friends who helped me out with the items for the silent auction. Janalee at Fair Planet, Tara and Brant Leatherdale, Kath & Bruce Larsson and Sportique Apparel.

Pictures from the event will be posted on their Facebook page KCC Facebook.
