Mega Stamping Event for the Pace Girls

Hi Everyone,

Long post today,

I wanted to share some pictures of the Mega Stamping Event we had here in Jacksonville, Florida yesterday!

It was a Benefit Event that we did for The Pace Center for Girls which is a school for Girls at Risk.

I have been stamping with them and it occurred to me that we could build a Stampin’ Corner at their school. So I gathered some of my Demonstrators and we did just that. We also had a few volunteers.

This was held at the Sandollar Restaurant on the St. Johns River here in Jacksonville. Can I just say it was hot!!!! It was easily 100+ degrees, but we were determined and so were our customers. They had a blast and loved the idea of an event like this. They enjoyed a wonderful Buffet Lunch and stamped the morning and part of the afternoon away. It was great, hot but great! We had tons of door prizes and even more wonderful raffle items.

We will be placing an order of around $650 for our Girls at Pace.

Thanks to all of our wonderful customers and friends that joined us. You all contributed to the success of our project and we Thank You!!!

Also joining me were fellow Arlington Civitans, Leo Farrell (whose voice I borrowed for the Prize drawings) and Caroline Simes of Aware Not Afraid …and lets not forget Harry the owner (fellow Civitan )of the Sandollar.

Enjoy the pictures and projects below……
