Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

March 17, 2009

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, I will wear my neon green swim cap to the coached swim tonight.  My coach gave it to me after I announced that I had hit the $1,000 mark in my fundraising.  That was a few weeks ago – I’m closer to $2,000 now!  Every day I open my mailbox and one or two of the little envelopes I included in my fundraising letter tumble out.  It warms the heart!

As impressed as I am with the sound of $2,000, that is only a little over half way to my goal.  I have some fundraising events in mind including a garage sale, selling cycling jerseys and a Kentucky Derby party.

I am most excited about the Derby party.  Of course, we will have plenty of mint juleps.  I don’t think I’ll do a betting pool, but guests will be able to predict the winner and I’ll have some kind of prize for that.  Also, I plan on having a hat contest with prizes for the best, craziest, etc. hats.  If the weather cooperates, we will extend the party into our back yard.  It should be a great time!
