Benefit….

I am still recovering from the Stephanie Coonan, ‘Don’t Stop Believing’ benefit this weekend, getting everything squared away, but I’m more than happy to report it was successful. We raised closed to $2000 for Stephanie and checks are still coming in. Thank you to those who came, those who donated, and those who offered prizes for the silent auction.

A big thanks to Trinity Restaurantin Keyport for letting my organization use the event. They were gracious, accommodating, and a wonderful resource I hope to use in the future.

Further thanks to the following businesses in my community and NJ for donating items for the auction:

The Beta Beta chapter of Theta Phi Alpha, Victoria Florist, of Cranford; Westfield Knights of Columbus Council No. 1711; Candice Sykes, of CBS Studios/As the World Turns; Lou Mongello, of DisneyWorldTrivia.com; Shall We Dance, of Middletown; Fat Kat Tattoos, of Keyport; Drew’s Bayshore Bistro, of Keyport; Pirate’s Cove on the Bay, of Belford; Bulkhead Bar and Grill, of Keyport; and, our host, Trinity Restaurant.

I cannot express my thanks enough for everyone involved. It truly touches my heart to see so many people come together to help someone.
