May 15-National Law Enforcement Officer's Day! A perfect day to post and say One more day!!!!
Hi everyome. Sorry for no posts the last 15 days-busy with dance and work! Let me catch you up!
May 1st event at Seacrets was incredible! Bill and I performed a little bit of our dance and we got a lot of applause! I got some attention from some of the guys there! There were some men who wanted to dance with me and donated money to the Wellness Community for the opportunity. I had so much fun. I must admit between the silent auction and the dancing I was exhausted at the end of the night. I have to thank so many people for the success:To My Daughter, Tabitha, my Mom and Dad, Leighton Moore and the staff at Seacrets (amazing individuals who did everything they could to make this event incredible!), Liz Steedman, Rob K, Melodie Carder and her son, the Wellness Community reps, and all the people who attended the event and last but not least my talented and gifted partner/instructor, Bill G----Thank you Thank you Thank you!!!!!! I also have to thank the individuals who donated items for the silent auction! I will post all the vendors on my next blog. Please support them for their generosity!
Bill and I have continued our practice. I feel we are finally ready. I am excited and nervous at the same time. The Saturday after the Seacrets event my whole body was sore! :) Over the past couple of week we have fine tuned our routine and I know we are going to put on an amazing show for the over 750 people who bought tickets! Wow-750 people. I better not dwell on that number too much. I've heard they are making a video to purchase so contact me if you want one!
One night Bill brought a friend ( I have his photo and will download it later) to help with some special effects we have in our routine (no hints!) Thank you!
I can't believe it is down to one more day before our big show. I hope we've been able to raise enough money for the Wellness Community. Their program and commitment is commendable.
I am proud to be involved in this event.
I got my costume this week-a very talented costume designer/tailor and dear friend, Janet Guiton, transformed a plain dress into something I am going to be so proud and excited to wear for the performance tomorrow night. If you need any type of sewing work she is the woman to call. She makes wedding dresses and hems clothing and is so professional and kind. She has a great eye and I am so grateful that she donated her time and work to the event! Thanks Janet! God Bless you and your wonderful family too.
Bill-a personal public thank you from me. You have been such a gentleman and great teacher. You have brought out more from me than I could imagine. I hope I make you proud tomorrow night. I will remember left, right, turn quick quick (fly swatter) and the pole and attitude and shoulders and posture and stay ahead of the music and straight lines, and All the words of wisdom you have given me since April 3! We have come a long way is 5 weeks.
Sue-thanks for you encouragement, example and ideas that have made our routine exceptional! I am so glad I've gotten to know you and appreciate the time you've allowed Bill to work with me. I know it has cut into your limited personal time with Bill. I am grateful.
To all who have bought tickets and donated in my name-Thank you and God Bless you. You have given to an organization that helps people when they are suffering and dealing with impossible issues. I choose my career because I wanted to make a difference. Thank you to the Wellness Community for allowing me to do this. It has been hard work and I have spent a lot of time, money and effort on this event, but I do it because I know the money we raise will go to people who need The Wellness Community's love, support and commitment to helping cancer patients and their families with a scary and life altering disease.
My Mom is a survivor and I have friends and co-workers who are dealing with or have survived cancer. May God continue to bless them. I pray for them and ask you to pray for them also.
You may consider donating your time to this organization or to another charitable group. Your life will be transformed and will have a purpose far above material gain and THINGS! Your reward will be great. You will feel so good about yourself the first time you volunteer or do something to help another human being. You will feel the grace of God in the gift you give. It comes right back to you.
Thanks for reading my blog. I will write more after the event! Now go vote some more in my name!! You have until Midnight!
Today I am getting a tan from Beach Fever in Salisbury and tomorrow I am getting my hair and make-up done by Visions Day Spa located at 123rd street in Ocean City! They are talented! Thanks to Kristin, Jody, Cathy, and Lisa in advance!
Thanks again and Love to you all,
