Shine On

WOW. What an amazing event! St. Baldrick's was a huge success and incredibly inspiring to boot. Overall, the event raised over $80,000, and thanks to you, the Peachy Keens raised over $5,000 on our own! We came in a strong second place, including a last minute addition to the team who was the very last shavee of the day - thanks, Mike! And just so you know, you can keep contributing throughout the year - to St. Baldrick's in general or to our team specifically - so get those lemonade stands and car washes going for a great cause! Thanks for all of your donations, your support, and for always Keepin' Georgia on Your Mind!

Before ...

and after - Go Peachy Keens!

Lolly and Romy show their support

Georgia and Poppa

I'll add some more pictures (and a video, if I can figure out how!) to our Keepin' Georgia on Your Mind Facebook group, so you can head over there, too. We all had such a great time on Saturday and look forward to participating again next year ... any volunteers? : )
