3rd Annual Fundraiser Success

February 12, 2020

All the amazing people that came to class!

You are only as successful as the people you surround yourself with. There’s that quote ‘You are Only as Good as Your Team.’ I truly believe that is true both at work but outside of it as well.

This past Saturday February 8th, 2020, I hosted a 3rd yearly fundraiser at Barry’s in Lincoln Park. It was the 2nd year raising funds for Latinos Progresando which is a Chicago (Little Village) based nonprofit that provides affordable legal assistance to immigrant communities. They also provide wellness programming and various other programs to the community.

Being an introvert (even if I have some extroverted tendencies) I’ve never been great at being a social butterfly. But everyone who made it or helped with this event make me truly feel like I’m doing things pretty ok 🙂

This year was the biggest turnout with over 40 people showing up to class and some that couldn’t make it. YOU made this happen. You helped raise over $1700 to an organization that means soooo much to me.

All I ever want at these events is for people to have a great time, meet someone new and perhaps learn about an organization that does so much good in our city. I think that was accomplished.

We sweat, we got some delicious snacks post-workout (thank you @Joybol) and some pretty cool things in the goodie bag and raffle.

Some of my biggest supporters – my siblings!

From the bottom of my heart, I want to say thank you again! You made the event a success and helped to celebrate my birthday in an amazing manner. Even though it was slightly an early celebration, I’ve been on cloud 9 since then. Thank you a bazillion!
