I've been blogging with Charity Wings since about 2010 (time flies!), and I've had the chance to hear from so many of you. One of our readers, Margie Fugii Higuchi, who lives near me told me a about a great crop she participated in that raises funds for Multiple Sclerosis. The 6th Annual Crop for a Cause: Making MS a Memory took place last weekend and it was a huge success.
This is Margie and I meeting face to face for the first time!
I was tickled to find out that the main coordinator of the event, Laura Machonis had actually volunteered for Charity Wings herself two years ago at CHA in Chicago. What a small world!
I know that Laura is not our only active reader, so please let us know if you're having an event that we can showcase! It's always amazing to see how incredibly talented our members are, and it's even better when we can be a small part of it! I got to benefit from the goodies you'll see below!
The event had an outstanding group of volunteers, giveaways, raffles and silent auctions. And don't even get me started on the funny, fantastic and friendly group of participants. Yup - they get the Triple F for FUN!

Now for the drum roll for total funds raised......
