Bag Decorating Party

First off, thank you to those that came it is always nice to see a new face and to hang out and color with the ones I've seen before! To those that couldn't make it, you were missed and I hope to see you soon. 

We had a nice afternoon with one another coloring lunch sacks and watching the newest version of Disney's Alice in Wonderland. We are going to fill the lunch sacks with healthy snacks such as granola bars and 100% juice boxes. Once we raise the money to purchase the items to fill the decorated bags we are going to donate them to the local food bank to distribute to families in need with children in their household. 

We are in need of donations. It seems we are going to need to have an event that we can "charge" guests with granola bars and 100% juice boxes as admission to get those bags full. Also we will be having a fund raising dinner at Hoss's Steak and Seafood located at 1450 N Atherton St in State College PA on Thursday, March 31 from 5:30pm - 8:00pm. To help sponsor the group get a hold of me prior to that date to get your ticket to give to the cashier when you arrive that indicates that you are there for us. You don't have to eat with the group, if you wish to come and privately dine with your family on that date, that option is open as well it still benefits us so long as you give your ticket to the cashier on that designated date. The group gets 20% of the sales which we also plan to use to fill the lunch sacks. 

I handed out event schedules and a letter requesting feedback on a few things and made available a few sign up sheets for committees, food-bank volunteering, and joining the Un-Birthday Group MS Walk Team. As of right now the team has raised $140 of the $300 team goal. Anyone interested in supporting us, we need donations and walkers. Anyone interested in walking should know that walking does not mean committing to raising funds if they do not wish to, they can simply walk with us and as of right now us is meaning my boyfriend and I so its safe to say that the team needs walkers.
