It is time to close the books on one of the most successful WWKIP days I've hosted yet. I decided this year to host my event at The Market at Cedar Point. I chose the Market for two reasons. First, Mary and her husband are some of the kindest, most generous people I've met. They work long hours seven days a week to provide our community fresh produce, local organic products, free range meats, fresh milk, eggs and more. They've recently added Chadwick's Seafood to their list of vendors. My crab loving daughter can attest to how awesome their fresh blue crabs are! The second reason for hosting the event there was to tie in a fundraiser for a local charity. Named after Mary's late daughter, Hannah's Hope is the Market's charity organization. Their website describes the charity:
We are hoping to change the lives of today's children by giving them a chance for their future. In today's world, a lot of children can not participate in extra curricular activities due to the financial position of their family's circumstance. Extra Curricular Activities are some of the first cuts from a family's budget when times get tight. We want to help these children begin or continue activities that they are interested in or passionate about. Whether it is fees for Soccer, football, basketball, or horseback riding lessons, ballet classes, guitar lessons or piano lessons, to anything that will enhance or continue to enhance a child's life, Hannah's Hope can help!"
Everything is set and ready to go!
A huge thank you to Jeff for setting up a canopy for us!
