Patty, Nicole and Linda (owner of Poway Jazzercise Fitness Center) hosted a “Putting on the Glitz” fundraising event to benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure this past Saturday at the Poway Jazzercise Fitness Center. Unfortunately I had to work so I wasn’t able to attend but from what I heard, it was an evening filled with fun, sweat, friendship, tears, laughter, energy and best of all… money to donate to the cause!
Patty, Nicole and Linda worked hard over the past few weeks to pull this event together and their hard work proved to be successful as when all was said and done and the dollars were counted, they raised $2,340.00! All together, team Patty in Pink has raised a grand total of $6,940.00!! I think that’s quite an accomplishment to be proud of!
Since I was unable to attend the event and can’t really talk about it first hand, I’m letting Patty fill in the details…
This was such an inspiring fundraiser!! The staff and teachers at Poway Jazzercise, along with many volunteers, put together an awesome spread of food. We received so many wonderful raffle prizes, we had a table full of things to choose from. At 6:00 p.m. Linda, the owner and instructor along with my daughter, Nicole lead us in a Burn and Blast Jazzercise class. The other instructors from Poway and Escondido got up on stage to help lead us. There was so much energy in the room and so much love and support it brought tears to my eyes. There were about 35 to 40 attendees, all dressed in their pink glitz. The donations had already started coming in prior to the event and each women who attended donated a minimum of $20.00 for the class. People were so generous. After the class, we munched on healthy food, along with a lot of yummy treats and had the raffle drawing and a silent auction for Ryka shoes donated by Jazzercise. It was a blast and I am definitely feeling the Burn and Blast today. I am so humbled by all of the support Nicole and I received from the Poway/Escondido Jazzercisors. There is a special camaraderie within the Jazzercise family and it was definitely reflected in this very special event.
This event was so successful, I have a feeling this may be a yearly event!
