A week ago we were invited to The Best Christmas 2011, a party to celebrate the season and give to those in need. This year Hope for the Sold was chosen as the organization to support, with the proceeds of the evening going to our documentary project.
Dave and Mandy McSporran were the masterminds of this event, and we were blown away by all the people that jumped on board to help them put this thing together – from Jeff and Liz who opened up their beautiful home, to Todd who helped create a fantastic logo, to Reed for taking the majority of these amazing photos, and for everyone who gave of their time and resources to get this off the ground. A HUGE thank you goes out to a very generous couple who matched the money that came in for the night, making the following announcement a possibility:
WOW!!! Our most sincere thanks to ALL of you who came out to the party and gave generously! This is a HUGE step toward our goal of raising $80,000 – 10% of our project was covered by you guys!
Check these sponsors out, they are fantastic:
And here are the party shots!
What a night. The Best Christmas happens every Christmas, so this is your opportunity to think of next year and what you’d like to support, whether it be with this crowd or your own wherever you are! What a great time to be generous and have fun doing it! I will be taking about a week’s break from blogging over the holiday season, but will hit the ground running in the new year. Savour this precious time with your loved ones and I’ll see you in 2012! MERRY CHRISTMAS!!
