Hi Ladies,

My name is Amanda Hart. My husband Brian and I are involved in the Professional Tarpon Tournament Series. I met the Creeks almost 3 yrs. ago. Ali and I were where both pregnant with our second child and were both having girls. Our boys are just months apart. Our husbands meet while fishing a local tournament together. Ali and I became fast friends. While my pregnancy was going great with the exception of Gestational Diabetes, Ali was in bed very sick. I had never heard of Preeclampsia and the affects that it has on the mother and child. I had lots of questions and Ali and Doug where always willing to feed my curiosity. When Doug called my husband and I to announce the birth of his beautiful daughter, what should have been excitement in his voice was replaced with the sound of concern. There was nothing we could do for them that wasn’t already being done.

When I was approached to be co-chair for the Silver king Banquet, I was thrilled. This was my chance to do something for Ali, Doug, Colton and Aubrie. As, well as the many other families that have gone thru the same things that the Creeks had. I had no fundraising experience and was ready for a new challenge. After countless phone calls to local businesses and many other companies I had landed the first of our many items for our silent Auction. During a handful of calls I came across some people that would either hang up on me or just flat out say I am not interested without even hearing what I had to say. In my disgust I would call Ali and she would remind me that this is why we need to raise awareness!

I am thankful that I could be a part of this banquet and assist in raising this money for your foundation. I would like to thank those "Salty-Sea-Captains" for taking out there wallets to purchase tickets, silent auction items and raffle tickets. Thank you to everyone involved, and a special Thank you to Mr. Joe Mecurio for giving Ali and I a platform!

Sincerely,

Amanda Hart

Ok...the dinnner cost a bit, so after that was paid for, I have a little over $8,000 to give our Foundation, (unless, after some sleep, I remember another expense that has to be accounted for.) It was fun, but exhausting. I ran the entire thing by myself, so, like a dummy, I forgot to take pictures. I think I saw someone else with a camera, so we'll see if I can get some from them.

Unfortunately, I'm softspoken and I'm on my way to laryngitis (spelled wrong, I'm sure), so I didn't get to make my big speech. I literally had to yell just so everyone in back could hear me call off the winning raffle tickets. Definitely 200 people there, every one had a great time. One woman even came up to me to thank me for putting the banquet together and mentioned that her sister-in-law had died from PE 25 years ago!!! They are on my mailing list to help out for next year.

AND the Marketing executive at Century Boat Company has approached me and said they want to join me and are going to help make this thing HUGE next year. [:p]

Overall: a very good night. Looking forward to next year....after I take short break from Fundraising. I'm so tired, my eyes hurt. [xx(]

Much Love to you all!
Your PE Sister,
