Friday

Sweet Success for a cause..

This past Thursday we had a "Tweet up" for Refuge House! I blogged about the event prior here. Thanks to my friend Amy Z, I have some photos to share a recap of the event.

The event as held at  LeRoc Bistro Cafe, at the Hotel Duval. It was a great location with its funky decor and delicious food. I had the make your own personal pizza with side salad, and C had the beef brisket sandwich with pasta salad. LeRoc's creative pastry chef  prepared this platter of chocolate goodies for us:

I have to give a shout out to Amy and Danille for doing all of the legwork and planning for the event! They truly recruited lots of friends and co-workers to attend!
Thanks to the generosity of author Elin Waldal, Amy had a signed copy of her book Tornado Warning: A Memoir of Teen Dating Violence and Its Effect on a Woman's Lifeto use as a door prize. Jessica was our lucky winner. 
Altogether the event raised $125 in cash donations for Refuge House and collected 4 towel sets, a twin sheet set, 2 pillows, 2 bean bags chairs and 2 bins full of gently-used bed linens. Amazing! Below is an attempt to fit it all in a photo...
I must also add that the TWTVite, was a great service for hosting the event, keeping track of RSVP's, reminding those those who RSVP'd on twitter, and cataloging all tweet with the hashtag for the event!
