This past Saturday night was the Friends of Joey Benefit Dinner and Chinese Auction! The house was packed, and there were a ton of generous people who wanted to win some great prizes. Among those prizes was the Handmade Gift Basket made by the Etsy NJ Street Team!
Here are the last 4 donations that I received for the gift basket...
Beachchik.Etsy.com generously donated a cute tote bag and a beautiful ocean-themed note card and envelope set!
byABPryor.Etsy.com dropped off this awesome reclaimed bracelet with her own added flowery flare, and it's just DAZZLING!
From CreationsbyDanielle.Etsy.com came this adorable crocheted shoulder bag!
And lastly, from CreationsbyRobin.Etsy.com is this fun and funky sea glass bracelet!
The winner of our basket was just absolutely thrilled with it. I got to run it over to her and talk to her about it a bit. I think per personal favorite from the basket was those floral hair clips by Katylua.etsy.com, as you might be able to deduce from the photo. ;-)
While I can't tell how much the basket raised by itself because it was a silent auction, I CAN tell you that the foundation made more than it ever has in the past...a whopping $10,000 in cash alone! This money is going to benefit a lot of families who are truly in need of it, along with cancer research, and it's touching that our team could come together and help benefit these people in our own special way.
Once again I'd like to thank everyone who found it in their heart to donate to this basket. What follows is a list of all the shops who have donated to the basket. Please visit them, as they are all talented crafters and artisans!
