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.
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!
