We raised thousands and thousands and thousands of dollars for the Red Cross on Wednesday. And it was all thanks to those of you who came, volunteered, sponsored and supported Hope in Haiti.
Larissa and Kim, you guys blew my mind. A huge thank you to Barcelona for hosting it.
A huge thank you to all those who helped out at the event: Rica, Rachel, Alexa, Lara, Lib, Kim, Dana, John, Rob, Sonja, Connie, KellyAnn, Michael and Mike. How would we have sold so many t-shirts and tickets without you?
A huge hank you to The WZRDZ, the funnest, funniest band in the world, and Vancouver’s favourite DJ’s: DJ Flipout and DJ Soo.
And a huge thank you to our outstanding auctioneer Gregory Rollo, who helped raise thousands and thousands for things like this autographed Gordie Howe jersey, which I got to wear for a few glorious minutes (photo by SoloLisa, whose hilarious recap of the event you can find here).
Were you there? Did you see the t-shirts everyone was wearing? They’re $30 cdn (plus shipping and handling) and net proceeds go to the Red Cross. So you can feel good about wearing one. Want one? Send me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks to Matt MacEwing for the three photos.
Thanks for the mention! It was such a pleasure helping out with the live blogging, and kudos to you and your crew for putting this event together and raising money for such a great cause.
