Then, thanks to Sheri Alford's mom Lynne donating her delicious cookies, we raised an additional $87.00 (thanks to people giving donations along with their payment and Andy buying lots of cookies)! A special thanks goes to Sheri and her husband Ahmet for driving all the way from Temecula to pick up the cookies this morning and sell them!
That brought the grand total to $1,887! Not too shabby for a morning of children's theater!
And it is GREAT children's theater. The kids were laughing. The adults were laughing. And the actors were sweating. It was HOT today in Eagle Rock and my hat's off to those actors. They put their hearts, souls, and sweat into that show--tumbling, climbing, diving. They were absolutely great. And thanks to Jamie Angell, the brains behind Occidental Children's Theater, for letting us pre-sell tickets for Soren. We really appreciate it!

Thank you everyone for getting up early and joining us this morning. It was lovely to see all the support we have for our sweet Soren. We are very lucky to have you all in our lives!
