What a krop!

Wow!!! What another great year for all our Kyrie Foundation kroppers! So much fun, food and friendship, and all in the name of saving children's brains from cancer!!

HUGE thanks to our volunteers who were instrumental in pulling together and making it all happen. From the planning to the set-up, from the donations to the tear-down, it was the effort from a great group of people to host this event in a way that's meaningful to our guests and to the foundation.

Christy and Melissa did a great job spearheading the coordination of the event, managing all the registrants and vendors, pulling in donations, shoppin and organizing not one but TWO meals of delish vittles—thank you, thank you!! Thanks Cara and Scrappin' Boot Camp for helping us get the ladies registered and printing the shirts. Big thanks Chaney, Angela and Madison for being our sous chefs! More thanks to Melissa, Donna and even more volunteers for making BEAUTIFUL desserts and to Terry for her famous baked beans! Nana Norma was a big hit again with her mid-afternoon cookies--HUGE thanks! Thank you to Donna and Amy for adding perspective with the beautiful story of Donna's handmade blankets. Thank you to Amanda for easing those scrapping ache with her marvelous massage therapy. Thanks to Shawna for creating another fun logo for this year's event. Thanks to Chad, Jordan, Danny, Flynn and Jayce for set-up muscles and to Chad, Jordan, Danny, Madison,Wendy and Susan (who drove from St. Louis!) for all the tear-down support. Thanks to Lacie & Amy for womaning our foundation table and for being positive spirit for the foundation. Thanks to Audrey for helping put the goodie bags together. Another round of thanks to Justin McClure TV for creating our fantastic PSA to show at events like this. Thanks to Gary for the drop-off, late-night pick-up and storage of our tables and supplies.

Our vendors really make the event special, too! Thank you to Jewelry by TLC, Thirty One, Tupperware, Scrappin' Boot Camp, Scentsy, Stampin' Up and Creative Memories for being there with us on Saturday!

MASSIVE gratitude to Pig In Pig Out barbecue for donating pulled pork and turkey for our dinner and to McAllister's Deli for helping us with a delicious lunch!

Of course, the event itself wouldn't be possible in this location without the generosity of Family Church. Thank you, Dustin, for always being there with answers! Another round of applause for Scrap FunAttic and Scrappin' Time for helping us this year with a fantastic prizes!
