Oh, I am so excited!!! I am already mailing out requests for donations. How far away is Holyoke from Boston? I have a customer there.

The date would have been my Benjamin's 5th birthday. If you need help in getting sponsors/donations for silent auction, give me a jingle.

Thanks for the replies ladies! I don't know how far Holyoke is but we could probably look it up. FYI -- I was notified that the date will either be Friday or Saturday, depending on when the keynote is available... so October 12th or 13th... but definitely in Boston!!

Holyoke is about 90 miles out - good news is that it is straight down the Pike - main East/West highway so it could be a fast trip (non-rush hour of course). Certainly close enough to argue business needs to be in the area I'm sure.. [:)]

Not sure how much "help" I can be, but will definitely be able to attend. I'll gather what items I can for the auction from the Red Sox, but do we have someone local that can take delivery and catalog the items we get?

Please let me know when the committee meetings are via email! Thanks so much!

We have a doctor in Boston who said his wife's mother's house would work. Will email you his contact details.
