Family FUNdraising!

As many of you would agree, FAMILY is the #1 priority!
There is nothing more important to me...these are the people who matter most, who make life what it is and love you unconditionally.

We've got a LARGE family that spreads out across the entire country.  It's hard to see everyone as much as we would like so the ones that are closer to home, we try to make it a point to always be there when we can.  What's better than a room full of family...chatting, eating, sharing, giggling - it's just the BEST!

SO, this year we're working hard to help out our family AND help benefit those in our "extended" family who share the same needs.  As we've done for the past 4 years, we're joining Team Matzkateers for the JDRF Walk for the Cure.  We look forward to it each year not only to be able to help those in need but for the FUN we have doing it.  Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Parents, In-Laws, Neices, Nephew,...they all gather together to show their support and love...not to mention the GREAT food at cousin Lisa's afterwards :)
If you're in the Bucks Co. PA area and want to join us PLEASE do - we'll have so much fun! 

A NEW walk we've decided to raise funds for is the Walk to Cure Scleroderma!
Another foundation that hits close to home.  As some of you may already know, I lost my Mother-In-Law to this awful disease this time last year.  It was a horrible ordeal she had to go through but Dottie fought with courage and grace never once showing signs of giving up.  For this reason, I think it is important to do as much as we possibly can so that noone else should have to endure what she did.  This year's walk is in Philadelphia down on Boat House Row...so all of you in the Philly area come on out!
