September 2006

September 2006 – The second annual Amanda’s Cruise for Juvenile Arthritis was a great success, despite crummy weather! We held it at a conservation area this year which had some benefits and some pitfalls. The biggest pitfall was having to pay $300 out of the profits to use the space! The benefits was plenty of space for cars, easy to find, and close to the highway where the cars could “stretch their legs”. We had 30 cars join us, although only 17 went on the cruise and we managed to raise $3,400! That was due for the most part to family and friends buying raffle tickets – thank you Tracey and Will!! While not a great success for weather, it was still a huge success for raising money and awareness. Tim’s goal is to raise $10,000 in five years – it certainly looks like he won’t have any difficulty reaching that!! And we are so blessed to have family and friends who come to help us out. We rely on volunteers and we were certainly not disappointed! We had a couple of amazing students from a local high school who were a great help. We can’t even begin to thank our family and friends who spent the entire day helping out
