We wanted to take just a minute to say thank you to everyone who came out Sunday afternoon (in the rain!) to help us celebrate our second birthday and to help raise funds for the Champaign County YMCA and Larkin’s Place.
Thanks to you, we raised $275 for the YMCA Building Fund. We’re going to match that for a cool $550, and each and every one of those dollars will also be matched. That’s over $1,000, going right back into our community–the community that inspired us to start this website.
It was great to see so many familiar faces, and some new ones, too. We’d like to issue a very special thank you to author Danielle Smith, who spoke so eloquently about her new book, “MOM, Incorporated,” and who sacrificed valuable time with her own family to be with us.
Danielle, you inspired us!
We could not have made it to our second birthday without the continued support of our local advertisers. Christie Clinic sponsored our event, and Farren’s Pub and Eatery not only opened their doors to us during a time when they are normally closed, they also generously provided all the food for our even. They also threw in one free drink per person.
We’d also like to recognize the following chambanamoms.com sponsors and friends who generous donated a prize for our weeklong giveaways online, and door prizes given out at the party:
We are looking forward to another great year!
