A big round of applause to everyone that made the 3rd Annual Art for the Cure of Cystic Fibrosis a HUGE success! Below you will see a rough estimate of what we raised at last Saturday's event, but first some thanks...

Conor O'Neill's - thank you to hosting us since our inaugural event! We look forward to it every year...your staff is excellent and the atmosphere always makes for a festive evening. A big thank you for your generosity this year - INCREDIBLE!

The Nathan Experience - thank you for jumping in last-minute to provide musical entertainment during our auction! We were all very impressed with your professionalism and talent - especially as high school students! We will definitely keep you in mind next year as well!

Auction Donors - we had over 100 auction items donated by local artists and independent businesses in Michigan. These businesses also include local printers who made certain we had our invites, flyers, and programs donated. THANK YOU!

Many of our art donors included children who participated in our successful "Kids for the Cure" auction. We are very proud of them all for getting involved and supporting our cause at such a young age!

Kyle- thank you for playing music to get us all dancing. As always, you know what tunes we love and it was so special to have you be part of this event in Robyn's honor. She was smiling down on you!!

Andrew - we were thrilled to have you get us laughing even though a bit later than originally planned - thank you for being patient throughout the evening!! Your compliments and put-downs were a hit!!! Excited to have you want to be part of it all again next year...

Dr. Simon - thank you again for your kind words at the event. Robyn was so excited that you accepted her invitation after last years event to be involved this year. We are thankful that you could join us to update our guests on the importance of their support to help continue research towards a cure. We look forward to your involvement again next year...

Ryan - You did such a wonderful job of addressing our group with your personal story of living with cystic fibrosis. We have heard from many that your presentation was powerful and prompted them to dig deep into their pockets to help the cause. It was an honor to include you in our event. We will definitely keep you in-the-loop on future ACCF events!

Additional Donors - thank you...your gift(s) were so thoughtful and will definitely help us in the fight for a cure!

Committee Members (and friends/family that helped with setup!) - thank you all for donating your time and resources to make the 3rd Annual Art for the Cure of Cystic Fibrosis a success. Robyn was SO proud of this event and would be honored to know you are working to keep her memory alive. I love you all! xo

Sponsors - our sponsors this year were Robyn's parents - my parents too. I am proud that we continue our fight to give other CF families hope that a cure is just around the corner. I know Robyn has provided us strength to get through a difficult time and still have the determination to help raise money for a cure in her name. I love you! XOXOXOXOXO

Lola - thank you for serving as the inspiration to many to keep your mommy's memory alive. You have a lot of "aunts" and "uncles" that are going to provide you with stories of how she touched their lives over the years. We were all very proud of your art submission for "Kids for the Cure", how you helped setup for the event, worked the check-in (some of us had stamps on our hands and arms for days!), and helped with keeping the happy atmosphere. I love, love, love you! XOXOXOXOXO

We still have money coming in the door, but as of today we raised over $8,500 for the cause! The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation will be thrilled when we hand over that money to be used for research towards finding a cure.On behalf of Robyn's entire family, THANK YOU for your continued support.

"Robyn" necklaces

Our committee is all decked out in our "Robyn" necklaces. You want one too, right? If so, please drop us a line and let us know. Orders processed prior to our event on 5/30/09 are $15 per necklace.

The necklaces were made possible by committee members Samantha and Michelle in loving memory of Robyn. Michelle painted the beautiful robin while Samantha coordinated the creation of of the necklaces with local artist Ann Shepard from "Such Pretty Colors." For every necklace sold, Ann will donate $10 to our cause. VERY impressive!

In addition to email orders, necklaces will be available for sale at our event on Saturday, May 30 at Conor O'Neill's. Details on how to purchase the necklace after our event will be available shortly.

It is with a broken heart that I inform all of our Art for the Cure of Cystic Fibrosis supporters that my beloved sister, Robyn, lost her battle with CF on November 29.

We are all deeply saddened at this tragic loss, but will continue on with our mission to help find a cure...that's what Robyn would have wanted. She was so proud of this event and honored that her friends and family would come together on her behalf. We will continue the tradition in her memory.

Breathe easy dear Robyn...we love you!
