Thanks for asking!! It was a great teamwork effort (ARJ, myself, Sara, Leah; Eleni, our PR Coordinator stopped by for a while, with a beautiful Preeclampsia Foundation banner and a "signs and symptoms" poster).
The Preeclampsia Foundation booth looked great, the weather was perfect, we had yummy things to sell for the bake sale portion, and the "drawing" portion had some really great prizes as well. Spoke with a good number of people stopping by the booth who had either heard of Preeclampsia, or unfortunately, had it themselves, but were unaware of the Preeclampsia Foundation. We are proud to have raised $231, and we look forward to challenging other chapters to "raise the bar".
