So the question of the day is HOW MUCH DID WE RAISE FOR CANCER RESEARCH?????


The grand total of today was $2,105 dollars!!!!


I had already raised $425 dollars before the auction today, so that puts my overall total at:

$2,530 dollars!!!!


Which means that I beat my fundraising goal of $2,500 by $30!!! :D SWEET!!!

As you may have noticed, there are still 4 items up for auction that did not go- I am leaving these items up tomorrow!!!

I wish I could throw you all a cupcake party!! :D


I am SO excited to run the 10k race on Sunday!!! I will proudly be wearing the amount of money we raised on my tank! :)


Well, I’m beat- See you tomorrow! Hopefully I will sleep tonight- haha!
