Chevy's Dinner Reminder: This Thursday Aug. 14th

first off, i would really like to thank jeannie for not only organizing 3 Day team, but getting Chevy's to have a fundraiser and getting the Palo Alto Daily news to run a small story about trish in the paper.


soo.. a quick reminder...

Jeannie Cocconi Wynne organized a fundraiser at chevy's in redwood city that will be held this thursday, august 14th.

chevy's will donate 25% of the food proceeds during the hours of 11:00am - 9:00pm to Trisha's Trailblazers... the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer 3 Day Walk team jeannie organized.

The 3 Day walk raises money for breast cancer research, education and treatment.

you can read jeannie's original post here:

Trisha's Trailblazers is currently 20 teammates strong, and has raised over $45,000 for the 'Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the National Philanthropic Trust'

the san francisco 3 Day will be held September 5-7, 2008.

and for you facebook types, jeannie setup a 'Breast Cancer 3 Day' group that can be found here:

This is "off the board" though I want to thank Jeannie (and Pete too!) for organizing both the Chevy's Fundraiser at Chevy's and the 3 Day "Trisha's Trailblazers" walk..

Your Mom is always smiling down on you though right now, she has a HUGE grin! (and I'm sure she has "surprises in her pockets too!)

Love and hugs~

Trisha,
So glad Nathan and I could grab a bite with you and Caden this afternoon. I was thrilled to be seated at the guest of honor's table :) You looked great, as usual, and and I can't wait to see you again soon. Have fun at the wedding this weekend, I hope the wig-cut went well.
