Team Vada

We want to thank each and everyone of you who supported "Team Vada" this year. By supporting Vada you also helped support GiGi's Playhouse of the Quad Cities. We are so grateful to have a GiGi's in our area and please know that your donations have done a great deal for this organization!

Team Vada raised $1600.00 in personal donations (donations given directly to us to be used towards getting Miss V on one of the windows at GiGi's). We also raised over $1200.00 in direct donations (I am afraid that I cant give an exact amount because I just don't know). Plus, we had twenty-eight walkers (thirty-three including Justin, the girls and I), making an estimated total somewhere around  $3200.00 that was raised and fully donated to GiGi's!!!

We couldn't have done it with our you!

I'm am thrilled beyond any measure to announce that Vada's name was drawn for the girl to be on one of GiGi's of the QC windows! Can I get a "Woot! Woot!"?

GiGi's is off of John Deere Road here in Moline and it's windows face out towards John Deere Road, so soon you'll be able to drive by and see our sweet baby girls face! We'll announce when her picture does go up-- of course!

This year we are making our thanks you's and we will be sending individual cards out to all of Vada's supporters. I can't wait to show you what we've come up with for the cards. Until I get them sent out I want to Thank all of you now, here. So, in a totally random order here's  the names of those who supported our girl.... (If I left anyone out don't be shy... TELL ME because it would be unacceptable leaving people unacknowledged.)...
