WOW!  What an amazing night!  Thank you to everyone who attended, donated, volunteered, contributed, etc. etc. etc.  On top of the crazy amount of money we raised for our children ($95,000)!!!  The biggest take away for me on Saturday (and the months leading up to it) was the building of our Alki Community.  So many of you stepped up to help make this not only the biggest fundraiser of the year, but just an all-around FUN NIGHT… Our kids seriously have no idea how cool (and wild) their parents are!  We not only made a record amount of money, but we also had a record turnout for so many of our Volunteer positions (before and during the night) that made the entire event that much smoother for all of the chairs.  Thank you again for your generosity with not only your money on Saturday, but of your time.  … I truly appreciate it.
