Bid Diabetes Farewell

To kick start the fundraising season, we will host Charlie's Angels' inaugural 'Bid Diabetes Farewell' charity auction this Saturday.

People are donating some very cool stuff for the auction. We have digital cameras, an mp3 player, brand new tennis rackets, tickets to a NY Red Bulls soccer match and much more.

A huge "thank you" to painter
Michael Wommack for donating a beautiful piece to the auction. Check out some of his paintings and pastels. Very nice.

Strawberry Luna, an amazing designer of posters for bands and artists such as The Decemberists, Iron & Wine, Death Cab for Cutie and a ton more, was also very happy to contribute to the cause. I received two wonderful prints in the mail. Thank you to her.

If you're ever in the Princeton or Philly area, stop by
Triumph Brewing Company. Great food and great homebrewed beer. I recommend the Bengal Gold IPA. The good people at Triumph forked over a very generous gift certificate without hesitation. All for juvenile diabetes research.

Lastly, thanks to
Manhattan Bagel for providing the grub. These guys rock. Happy to help. No questions asked. Other than, "how much you want?"

Looking forward to great day on Saturday. Photos and recap forthcoming.

Carey,

I hope you raise tons and tons of money. Maybe someday I will feel capable of doing something about this disease – other than fighting it at home. I know I’m new at this, but I do have hopes of raising lots of money - soon.

On another note, I have now read every post on your blog – thanks so much for putting your heart out here for others to read. Especially, “The Girl”. It does hurt to know how the siblings are effective. I do have on old employee from a very small town in Minnesota who was diagnosed at the age of 7 – he is now almost 40. His older brother was always very protective of him and his brother is now an endocrinologist!

Good luck on Saturday,

Kelli
