The set-up crew did a wonderful job setting up the Burma Road Chapel for the event.
25 heads shaved in all and including on-line donations and donations raised at the live event today, over $20,000 raised - an amazing display of community spirit.
Team Emery raised somewhere around $3300. Day before and day of donors I wanted to thank include Jane (again), Lori G., Gina, Cindy Scott, Max, Betty, Oliver, Lani, Ann, Sonia and Susan (for donating and for doing such a great job MC-ing the event).
The winner of a box of crab is Joe Thuet from Florissant, MO - look for it to hit your doorstep sometime next week Joe! All I ask is you email me a photo of you and the crab to post when you get it!
I didn't take many photos today, I just wanted to soak it all in and enjoy the event. A friend is going to share his and I will post a bunch as soon as I have them - I got a sneak preview on his wife's Facebook and they look great!
I have a few more thoughts to post on the event and fundraising in general; maybe tomorrow or when I have the photos to post. Thanks so much to everyone, on-line and in the community, that worked so hard to make this event a success - thanks especially to Brian Rankin for spearheading the effort and seeing it through to a great conclusion! Okay, heading to bed, cheers . . . .
