Hey guys! It's Smartie Smart again! I can't believe it's only been a week since my debut at Maifest. What a crazy last few days!
First of all, I have to say thank you to all the wonderful volunteers, vendors, entertainers and attendees who helped make this year's Spring Gala such a success! It being my first swanky event, I was quite impressed! The basket and Packer raffles were fun and the silent auction went very well. Erin Davisson from Channel 5 helped board member Jen Thompson host the event and Miss Door County Katie Sawyer and Door County Idol Lily Larsen were there to entertain. There was some pretty amazing food and desserts and really excellent wine (or so I've been told!). I did get a chance to make some new friends too, and meet some of the great people who help the Center continue their important work.
Now, it's going to be hard to top the Spring Gala, but we're going to try! This week my schedule is: Monday, June 1, Associated Bank. Tuesday, June 2, Julie's Cafe. Wednesday, June 3, Moretti's. Thursday, June 4, NDCC. Friday, June 5, Baylake Bank in Sister Bay for a BAKE SALE! and Northern Grill for the dinner crowd. Saturday, June 6, Mainstreet Market. And you can always listen for my schedule on 106.9 FM The Lodge. Come find me, check me out (I don't mind!) and buy your tickets! Remember, if you win you get me AND $5,000 cash! Only $20 a ticket with only 4,000 tickets available.
Also, I was surfing the Web recently and found a site that has stories from my brothers' and sisters' owners about how safe we Smarts are. I was a little worried about my siblings, but we're a hardy lot and just about all of them made it out of the accidents with just a few scrapes. Whew!
