bbq and silent auction fundraiser

i heart my moms group. for many different reasons, but mostly because these ladies will bend over backwards and help you in time of need. whether it be something big or small, they are there to let you know they care. that said, a couple of months ago, one of our members and friend received some devastating news about her cancer...

here is her story:
Robyn was diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer in July 2008.
She had a double mastectomy, chemo and radiation. Robyn and her family received devastating news in January 2010. The cancer had spread to her spine, liver and lungs.

Robyn is a wife and mother of two beautiful daughters: Mary Micheal, age 7 and McClain, age 3. Proceeds from this fundraiser will go to her daughters' college funds and to help her husband, Clinton, take some much needed time off work.

we wanted to help, but didn't know where to start until mag, becca, and kim g. all got together along with help from others to organize a "BBQ and Silent Auction Fundraiser" for robyn and her family. the event was held at 11:00am until 3:00pm at shades valley presbyterian church. overall, it was a huge success and ended up raising more than $2,000 for her and her family. great job, ladies, and we wish robyn the best!
