Oh man, oh man, oh man…I have been on cloud nine since Friday night!!! Andrew and I didn’t go to bed until almost 2:00 AM because when we got home (at midnight) we were still too excited and over the moon to settle down. Friends, we made over $130,000 for the Manda Strong Foundation!!!!! EEEEEEEEEEEKS! I have truly cried more tears of joy than I thought possible. It was SUCH a spectacular event from beginning to end.
Today, I’m just sharing pics from our night. Between all of the friends and family who showed up to my amazing brother and sister-in-law as our hosts, it was PERFECT. Looking back, I wouldn’t change a dang thing. I am just still BEAMING! That’s so much money to help mamas fighting cancer make memories with their kids!!!!
Here is a little look at the day in pics…
I started off my morning at Drybar with some girlfriends!
Tyler is the president of our board (and I’m his Veep!).
Manda used to always ask us to take care of her mama. Doesn’t she look beautiful?!?!
Last minute preppin’ before the fun begins!! My dress is found HERE.
Sean and Catherine both knew Manda, so when we asked them to host, they were so sweet and jumped on the chance. I’d also like to say that they not only hosted, but they donated both a couch and chairs for the auction from their line (whichever piece the winners wanted including free delivery) and they participated in the auction/donation portion as well. They TRULY supported our foundation. When Catherine was talking about Manda, I just about bawled my eyes out. It was the sweetest. These two are just AMAZING! (Side note: they were super funny on stage too!)
My sweet parents bought a table and brought friends too! Doesn’t she look beautiful?!
They were outstanding!
Guys, I’m grinning ear to ear just sharing these pics. I was blown away by the generosity of everyone there that night. MANDA WOULD BE SO PROUD! Dang, I’m happy! xo
