Burgers and Dogs - Bringing Home Ellie

We've dubbed most of our fundraisers, "Bringing Home Ellie". Today we ran a concession stand at our church and community Easter egg hunt. We exceeded our goal and raised a over $500. After expenses, we will clear a little over $300. For two hours of sales, we thought that was excellent. We have a couple more concession sports tournaments to work in the next month and hope we will do as well on those as we did today. We had quite a few sodas and waters left so we should make more profit on those since we won't have to purchase as much.

Here are some photos from the day:

Thank you to all who helped with this event. We are all really tired. As Kevin said, "I think this is going to be an Advil night." Now it's on to make Easter lunch.
