On Monday June 21st, 2010 the Madison chapter of the Arthritis Foundation held a fundraiser at the Maple Bluff Country Club. They had invited some minor celebrities including Mike Eaves, Matt Lepay, Jim Bakken, Pat Richter, and Jay Wilson.
It was a great event for a great cause! Everyone was very enthused about golfing Maple Bluff and helping out the Arthritis Foundation.
I had a chance to talk with Mike Eaves about Our Daughter's Story and he was very interested and asked detailed questions about her situation. He said if he could ever help out again to let him know :)
One note about Arthritis Foundation events, they are fun!! I have volunteered at three of them so far and each time I left feeling like I had spent my time well. Having a young family there is never enough time in the day but I never leave a foundation event feeling like I had wasted my time.
I always have a great time working with such a great group of people. I think it is so very important for them to make the events fun because it encourages you to come back next time, and I will!
The event raised over $22,000 which is great for such a small staff to secure that much funding!
