JDFR Wins When Our Fans Brave the Rain
Rain does not dampen anything. They say rain on your wedding day is good luck. I am here to say that rain on your big open house/fundraiser is lucky too. After all, we are in Arizona and everyone knows it does not rain in Arizona in April. In fact only days ago it was 100 degrees. I bought a sleeveless dress knowing I would be sweating through our big event. But, if you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans. My plan went from music and silent auction in the shade of sun umbrellas to freezing under a rain tent, it was 44 degrees and pouring. No matter. We have fans and our fans came out. Considering that Arizonans generally refuse to leave the house if there is any precipitation we really have great fans! It was a packed house, we demo’d Coolsculpting (thank you Pinar for donating your tummy to the cause).
We gave lectures and listened to Nick Heward entertain us with beautiful guitar music. But most important to me, we raised over $13,000 for Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Finding a cure for Type 1 Diabetes is important to me. My son needs that cure.
