Well, I'm up to 61 tickets sold and A LOT of awareness spread. The host of the Professional Tarpon Tournament TV show had me get up infront of a bunch of "salty sea captains" tonight and tell them all about Preeclampsia and why I'm involved with the foundation. I've never been so nervous, but EVERY ONE of them listened so attentively (I was surprised). I told them about my experience and some of the women--and men that I've read about from the forum. I've had a pretty frustrating week, but standing up there, as nervous as I was and speaking about the devastating effects PE has had on us, whether it's losing the dream of having a family or losing a child or wife or mother, they all listened...and then got out their wallets and bought my tickets. I felt like you all were there with me. And on the way home, I had a good cry because I looked back at my little rug rats and though how lucky I am and how unfair it is that we lose so much to a disease that no one really seems to know about. Hopefully we will continue to change that--even if it's only one "salty sea captain" at a time.

I wish you all could have seen the response...it was awesome. I still need help-but I'm pretty sure I'll sell atleast half the 300 tickets to this audience. We have an ad running in the paper this week. Keep your fingers crossed!

Hello ladies! I only received one response to Carol's request for help with the Silver King Banquet to benefit OUR foundation. So far, I've only been able to sell 20 of the 300 tickets for the event on June 17th. Is anyone planning to attend or can anyone help me sell these tickets???
Those of you who live a little farther from Punta Gorda: you can come for the weekend (bring the husbands) and come to the banquet on Saturday night and then to the beach on Sunday morning to watch the championship Tarpon Tournament. I've pretty much been a "one-man-band" with this event and I truly don't mind, but had hoped to make this a true Preeclampsia Foundation event. Without more survivors there, besides myself, we won't have the presence I had hoped for. Is anyone out there who can give me a hand??? Besides, I look forward to meeting some of you and helping Carol get our Florida chapter moving towards doing some great things. So, Carol's request for help has turned into my "plea" for help.

Love,
Your PE Sister,

Come help with a PF fundraiser in Florida!!!

Hi Florida members!

Wanted to encourage anyone who can drive to the West Coast on June 17th to help us out with a fun and exciting fundraiser that has been locally planned and driven by one of our own hardworking, committed members - Alli Creek. See the link above which appears in the Events Calendar at the top of the Forum. Alli's email address and phone number appear in the link. If you are interested in helping her out (and she would love some extra help!!!) please contact her asap. It would be awesome to use this opportunity to gather and meet some of you ladies....and I know everyone is always looking for a way to help get involved in the PF more than just posting on the Forum. Here's your chance!

Hope to see many of you there!
