Fundraising and fundspending

This weekend was a weekend of raising and spending the cash!

On Friday night, Hubster, my Mom and I attended the fourth annual Life Over Lymphoma Fundraising Gala. The fundraiser is organized by Hubster’s late friend, Philip, suffered with lymphoma for 12 years before he finally lost his battle on May 9th, 2004…just 11 days before my Dad passed away from leukemia. We have attended 3 of the 4 galas, missing only last year because I was so sick with my pregnancy. Joanne does such a fantastic job and she should be proud of the committment she has made to her late husband’s dream of erradicating lymphoma forever.

Yesterday, Hubster and I took the boys, together with our neighbours, Franca, Eddie and Kathryn, to Buffalo for a shopping spree. $600 later, we have winter coats, new shoes and some much needed clothes. With the Canadian dollar at or above par with the US dollar, we would be stupid not to take advantage!

And so, money spent on a good cause on both counts. LOL!! Pin It
