Last night was spent at The Shawnee Inn at the Pocono’s Quarter Auction in raising support and awareness for GIST Cancers and supporting an awesome charity event headed by my sister called GISTrun4DAD (In honor of MY DAD). You can check out the GISTrun4DAD facebook page and find out what it is all about. If you are interested in donating or are just wondering what the hell is GIST cancer, you can also check out the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center’s site to read more about GIST cancer and donate whatever you can to the cause. **Remember every dollar counts— and no amount is too small!! 🙂

Speaking of donations… last night I am very excited to announce that we raised a grand total of $1,831.61!!!!! 🙂 100% of the money raised last night is going directly to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center!

The Pocono’s Quarter Auction was really a BLAST!!! I went to one last month which raised money for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. The Pocono’s Quarter Auction is held once a month, and each month they sponsor a different charity. It is amazing to see the local community come together and help give back to amazing people and amazing charities and organizations! Next month, The Pocono’s Quarter Auction is sponsoring the HK Mission- Healing through Kindness.

More about last night… Here is a little review through pictures… Oh and may I happily add… I WON I WON I WON!!!!! I am usually never lucky, but I WON a $25.00 gift certificate to Studebaker’s Restaurant & Lounge!!! Studebaker’s is a delicious restaurant on 611 in Stroudsburg with a menu that has something for every one and a yummy salad bar! The Hub’s and I will definitely put that prize to good use! Can’t wait to let you know how that goes!!! 🙂
