    I appreciate you guys so much! It was an honor to meet all of you. Thank you for your dedication. Everyone worked so hard!!! And we really made a difference in those women's lives. In a few days I will add some photos to the website. Once available, I will add links to view the Fox 26 coverage and newspaper articles. If you have an "official quote" you would like posted on the event website, send me an email! I plan to create a page full of feedback and quotes. Again thank you guys-all of you were simply amazing! I plan to coordinate more events like this in lieu of 'The White Picket Fence Project' Its time for us women to build our own fence...once picket at a time...

    Much love,
