Amazed and Exhausted

We are so amazed by all of the support we received for our first event.  Ella's Halo Bowling for Babies raised $7000 to help babies and families in the NICU.   Over 150 bowlers came together to help Ella's Halo raise money and to move our mission forward.  Thank you to all of our family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, doctors/nurses, and acquaintances who came out to help support our cause and to remember our little girl.

A big thank you to our event sponsors:

Red Roof Animal Hospital
Outdoor Bunker
KLN Enterprises
Visual Impact
Ella's Friends in Heaven- Anna, Baby Van Zee, Dylan, Faith, Jace and Sophia

Also thank you to all of our lane sponsors:

Carr's Tree Service

Broadhead + Co.
Ottertail Aggregate
K5 Construction
Wedding Designs and Rental
Natural Nutrients
Ella's Cousins- Kellen and Shea
Ella's Fargo Friends

Thank you also to all of the individuals and companies that donated to our raffle.   Thank you to all of our volunteers that helped make the day go so smoothly. Thank you to Faith's Lodge for donating your Hope Rocks CDs to each of our bowling guests. Thank you to our wonderful host Park Tavern.  We couldn't have done what we did with out all of you.

And thank you to the lovely ladies that make up Ella's Halo Board of Directors. They volunteered at the event, shared their ideas, and dedicated long hours to ensure that we put together a wonderful event that our guests would enjoy and to help make Ella's Halo so successful.

We still can't believe that our first event is over. Now we are exhausted!  But amazed by our little girl's spirit and how her memory is living on in Ella's Halo.  See you in 2011 at our next Ella's Halo Bowling for Babies!
