Hope For Julianna Benefit

In previous posts i have shared with you all how my baby cousin, Julianna is battling Leukemia for the second time. She has recently recieved a bone marrow transplant from her twin, Jessica. This Saturday we held a fashion show-cocktail party fundraiser. There were Vendors, one being Looking4Lilly. Snacks, sweets, and mocktails were served on faux silver trays to guests. We had raffles to add to the festivities. Friends and family pitched in from all angles to make this event happen. The love & support recieved was just overwhelming. Our goal was not only to raise money for them to help with their medical bills, but to make a special day for the girls after all they have been through. It was a glorious day, god was definitley smiling down on us.
Walking the Runway with the girls, can't see Jessica in this one- Julianna is on the left. It was perfect La Roux's In For The Kill was playing. The excitement the girls & I felt was just electric. When we stepped out on to the grass i was stunned to see how many people came to support us, my backyard had to be filled with 65 people, at least. It was beyond what we all thought it would be.
It took three of us to get Gabby in her dress, hahaa- Zipper malfunction.
All my friends & I on the lawn posing for a photo. (Lauren,Paige,Faith,Jan,GabbyAlexa, Me, Jessica & Julianna) and in case you are wondering - yes I'm in Lilly!

One of our Vendors, Cookie Lee Jewelry. Here I am teaching the minnies everything i know about shopping.

Me & the girls. It was a wonderful day. This was not only a benefit to spread awarness for Leukemia & a fundraiser but a celebration that despite everything we've been through Julianna is still here and is doing ok. I love you minnies & can't wait to watch you two grow up!
P.S - Will be posting photos of the Fashion Show Stay Tunned!
