Went off fabulously.
Everybody who I talked to said they loved it (that's including people who had no idea I was planning it.)
We're getting ready to count the money.
I'll update with more info, hopefully later this afternoon. If I can stay awake. (it was an early morning...)
3:20 p.m update:
We've counted the money and the pledges and have a preliminary total.
Drum roll please...........
We raised more than $200,000.
We know there are guests who said they would mail in a donation later, so it's hardly a final total yet.
But, adding the breakfast donations to what I've raised this year in grants, the money total is now $412,000!
With a few outstanding grant applications still out there, I'm still really hopeful that I'll cross the 500K mark before the end of my VISTA service.
