October 24th Photo - BC Crop for Kids

This weekend out in Abbotsford, a very special fundraiser took place for BC Children's Hospital. The Scrapaholics, my scrapbooking group raised and presented a $1000 cheque. Last year, this event raised over $22,000. It was a great time and I am proud to be a part of such a worthwhile cause! Today's photo is of all of us in our tropical themed attire presenting our cheque to Mary and Sandra, the organizers for Crop for Kids.
