My colleagues were so generous to throw a fundraiser for Seth at work. They put together an ice cream social called Scoops for Seth. Boston Bean who supplies the officescoffee even brought in a keg of cold brew coffee and coffee cakes for the office to enjoy and raise more money for Seth with Sips for Seth. For a complete stranger to notice the poster in the office and want to help was really amazing.
Fortunately, Seth was home today so I was able to attend and Steve and Sadie met me there as well. I was so overwhelmed with the amazing raffle baskets people put together as well as the head Chef in the cafeteria downstairs. People from other businesses and buildings in the Wall Street area even came over to enjoy some ice cream and get in on the amazing raffles. The hot ticket items were the Kate Spade bag and Red Sox ticket bundles. Awesome right!?!?!?
Sadie really enjoyed pulling some of the winning raffle tickets as well as pulling all the post it notes apart in my office (thanks Laurie!).
Unfortunately, Seth was not well enough to attend the fundraiser like we hoped. I consider myself someone who stays under the radar and isn't known by all throughout my company so to have so many come together to support my family was truly special.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. The amount raised was above and beyond anything we could have hoped for!
