I have had the pleasure of meeting some amazing people throughout this breast cancer journey. Some of the people I have met, through a random set of circumstances, are from Arkansas. These amazing ladies put together an event called NWA Metsquarade. It’s an annual dinner event that they put together and the proceeds benefit Metavivor.
I would love to attend but don’t know how feasible it is. But then I had a thought. What if I held a similar event here? A Central Florida Metsquarade? We could do a plated dinner and a silent auction as well…this may be a pie-in-the-sky idea but it’s one that I can’t get out of my head. I think it would be fun and beneficial…but also a wondeful opportunity for local people to connect, including those like myself. It would be a night out for folks (who doesn’t love getting dressed up?! Especially for a good cause!) but it would also be a chance to raise money.
It’s just a thought for now and would require a lot of planning and help. (I’ve also reached out to the wonderful ladies who run the Arkansas event.) So, I thought I’d turn to my blog. Would anyone out there be willing to volunteer their time to help put together this event? Is there any interest in attending a dinner benefit like this? I’m also thinking we would do a silent auction (like nwamets.com) with donations to help raise money?
Thoughts? Is this something that we could make happen?!
