Go Dawgs!

We are all celebrating a great victory over the Cougs last Saturday, as well as the title of Pac-10 Champs! Way to go Dawgs! We were privileged enough to gain entrance to the last four Men's Basketball home games to sell bracelets for Andrew. We simply showed up, set up a booth and watched with awe as crowds of people stopped by to show their support. It truly was amazing and a great showing of the human spirit, as well as Husky fans uniting to support a fellow Husky in need. We were thankful for the KJR radio interview, Seattle Times and Seattle PI article - - as the timing surrounding the games provided a lot of exposure. We averaged just under $2000 in sales per game. Wow! All we can say is thank you from the bottom of our hearts to all you Husky fans who showed support. And a HUGE thank you to all of our wonderful volunteers who worked each game. We could not have done it with out you. Another big thank you to the people who gave us the right to be at the games and last but not least, thank you to my dear sister Martha. Martha spent countless hours coordinating the details, as well as working 3 out of 4 of the games. Each and every one of you are an important part of this process and we again want to say how thankful we are. We are amazed everyday by the outpouring of love.

And if any of you wonderful volunteers have more pictures from any of the 4 games, please send them my way so I can add them to the blog!
