I think I’m doing what is normal for me by going overboard on Mush for a Cure. Last night I had a dream that I was considering purchasing a pair of heels to go with a dress I had previously purchased. Forget the fact the shoes were a size 6 and I wear a 7 but when a friend said they were 130 dollars I actually considered buying them. Luckily when she said they were actually $1130.00 I came to my senses and put them back on the shelf. This dream and about a hundred other ones similar to it have been swirling in my brain at night.
I have been spending alot of time thinking about and planning for the Mush for a Cure however it’s for a great cause. What else can a person do to raise over $25,000. for the National Breast Cancer Foundation and have so much fun doing?
We added the Pink Prom Pasta Party and The Bald, The Brave and The Beautiful to this year’s Mush for a Cure and it’s going to be a great addition to an already wonderful weekend of fun. People are talking about their prom dresses and accessories they plan to wear for the dance and Grand March. Minds are spinning about how to secure the King’s Crown and Robe for the weekend and about who will walk away from the evening needing a warmer hat.
The plans are coming together quite nicely and people will be surprised to see how Trail Center can be transformed into the perfect prom place. Decorations have been ordered, the photo backdrop designed and the meal will be delicious as all meals served at Trail Center are. We’re still looking for a punch bowl so if you have one you can lend then please let me know. It wouldn’t be a Prom without one.
In all seriousness folks, this is a great event for an even greater cause and you really want to say you were a part of it. If you can’t make it on March 12-13th then please get involved some other way. Maybe you have an item that would be perfect for the Silent Auction or as a prize for the musher with the most pledges, if so then please consider donating it to Mush for a Cure. Everyone has connections with corporations that have deep pockets or frequents places of business that could donate something to make the event even better. Please take the time to mention Mush for a Cure so we can continue to make this event better than ever.
