Our spaghetti fundraiser tonight was fantastic! Over 200 people attended. We can’t wait to get the final numbers to report.
This was all possible because of our church, First United Methodist in High Point. The church provided the meal so all proceeds from the dinner could go to research. And several church members volunteered in the nursery so parents could attend the program after the meal.
Angela Guy, Callie’s preschool teacher, was the organizer in chief. She made sure the dining room was beautiful — decorated with table cloths, centerpieces about SMA, balloons and pictures of Callie. She also made sure everything went off without a hitch, which it did.
Kim Myers and her team cooked spaghetti all afternoon and made sure the meal was delicious and pleasant for everyone. Countless people set up the dining hall, dished out salad and dessert, served spaghetti, made sure people had ice in their cups and cleaned up after the entire event.
And a special thanks to Dr. Anderson, Callie’s pediatrician, who volunteered his time and expertise to educate us all about SMA.
We’re honored so many people made time to support this cause. Because of them, we’re closer to a cure than we were yesterday.
