It's been a long, hard road, but I'm pleased to say my wife raised over $11,500 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in the 9 short weeks she had!
I'm so very proud of her and so hopeful that this money will be used to find a cure for all blood cancers.
That said, it's not quite over yet. We have until 1:00 PM Pacific time to continue to raise money online. If any of you have an extra $5 (more is obviously welcome too, lol) please consider donating through this website: http://los.dojiggy.com/... .
If you are interested in attending the Grand Finale event tomorrow and live in Los Angeles, where there will be both a silent and live auction (and an open bar!), please follow me below the fold. Thank you all for your support.
Here are the details for the Grand Finale event:
