9 Feb

I didn’t advertise our next fundraiser on the blog; mainly because I don’t think anyone local really reads it. But on February 4th, we had a Zumbathon and it was fantastic.
Between being frazzled and the nerves of speaking into a mic, I forgot the most important thing…to thank specific people. So I’m gonna take the time to do it here. Better late than never. ;o)

First and foremost, I want to thank Cyndi. She volunteered her time and talents to host the zumbathon. She is a certified Zumba instructor and she literally kicked everyone’s arse. She also got us the awesome venue for our event. It was such a great space; perfect. Thanks again, Cyndi!

Many mahalos to Audrey! Besides the Zumbathon being Audrey’s idea in the first place, I really don’t think we could have pulled it off without her. She really was a lot of help in planning the event. Thank you Audrey! And thanks to Audrey’s mom, Karen, for volunteering at the door.

Thank you, Alex P.! We also had many raffles and a few giveaways at the event and Alex was the main reason why we had so many great things to giveaway.

Culeen and Erin also donated gift baskets to be raffled off. Erica from Scentsy donated a warmer and Irene from Mary Kay donated two gift bags to be raffled off, thank you all sooo much!

And thanks to Jess and Katie who managed the raffle table.

Thank you to Meghan! Who apparently got the event announced on 105.7! LoL. Love that girl!

I also want to thank BeeBakes for donating *super yummy* cupcakes and Tony from ITI Pros for donating his time and services by DJ-ing the event.

And of course, many thanks to everyone who came out! The event was sooo much fun because of you!

Now…photos! And a short video (provided by Debra Schell)

Thanks to Cyndi, we were able to secure a fantastic venue.

Jeremy and Lil’ B watching the fun from the 2nd floor.

The 2nd floor was also a great space for the kiddies to run around. Here are the lil’ ones chasing Jeremy. He’s such a kid magnet.

Shake that arse!

Tony from ITI Pros doing this thing.

Tony even joined in on the fun. I heard him him say, “That’s my song!” as he ran out on the dance floor! ;o)

Such a fun event; thanks again to everyone who came out!

Check out the video to see some of the live action:

    I’m so glad you had a good event! I wish I lived closer–I’ve never done Zumba, but it looked like it was a lot of fun!
