The GPRW Fundraiser at Talbot’s in Madison. Where to begin to share how much fun and successful this was? Or to describe the experience that this store created for us? From start to finish we were surrounded by wonderful people who wanted to make sure they did everything possible to help us raise funds for and increase awareness of GPRW. Our very heartfelt thanks go out to so many for so much. We’ll start with Jeni Johnson, General Manager of Talbots Madison, and her wonderful team. Watching these people work their magic with the customers that night was nothing short of amazing. Then there’s Steph, who volunteered with us at the UW Men’s BBall concession stand, works at Talbots and who made us aware of the program they offer to non-profits. Tabby & Jack’s not only provided us with a gift basket filled with goodies as a door prize, but also posted a flyer about our event and included copies of it in their customers’ bags to help us promote it. Aveda at West Towne Mall provided skin care kits for us to use as door prizes and product samples that went into the gift bags. Thank you, Aveda!
Last but not least, the star of the evening, Sophie, and her humans, Rachel and Ryan K. They did an outstanding job of representing GPRW, helped to plan the event and obtain door prizes. Miss Sophie loved every minute of all the attention she received. Thank you. GPRW has been invited back to host a second event! So pull out your calendars and write in this date now, Sunday, June 7th, 2015, from noon until 4:00.
