2nd Annual Celebration of Life Dinner was a success!

Thanks so much to all who came to the largest gathering of Young Survivor Sisters yet. There were over 60 people in attendance at last nights event, and we were so happy to see you all there! We need to send a big Thank You to those who helped make last night a success! Ginny worked very hard to obtain all the donations given out. Laurie arranged for the speaker, Rick Bojak to speak to us and inspire us to think positively. Erin set up the musical number performed by Lara Garner (Wasn't she amazing?!) And Jan put together the information sheet that will be used to match new sisters to those currently in the group.

The thank you cards you signed have been delivered to some and will be mailed this week to those who were on the program or who paid for everything. Thank you to Dr. Marga Massey who paid for the food (www.diepflap.com, or www.drmarga.com) and Niel Wilkinson, Temple Square hospitality Corp. who arranged for the location.

We will be posting the list of businesses who donated as well so you can make sure to visit them in the future!
