Audra's Kind-Of Birthday Party

On Monday Audra turns two- crazy I know, she thinks she is turning 16. Anyway, we decided not to do a Birthday party because we did such a big one last year, but in lieu of a party and gifts and everything else, we wanted to invite everybody to come to CiCi's Pizza this Saturday at noon and help with a fundraiser for Matt and Jenny Fischer- read their story at http://www.colofisch.blogspot.com/. (For those of you in Seattle, this is a special invitation for you to come!) CiCi's Pizza will give 10% of all of the proceeds for that day to the Fischer's family (be sure to mention their name when you order!!!!), and we thought that helping them out would be the greatest gift for Audra's Birthday. I'll have a cake to make it official that we are celebrating a Birthday, but really it is about them.
The CiCi's is located just north of Hampden and Sheridan in the Kings Soopers/Home Depot parking lot. I hope as many people as possible can come, so put it on your calendar!!!! If you need better directions, just call.
If you happen to have a more exotic palate, there is also a great fundraiser at The Melting Pot this Sunday. Of course, it is all Melting Pot food and there will also be a silent auction. For information on this fundraiser for Matt and Jenny, go to: http://colofisch.blogspot.com/2009/02/tickets-are-on-sale.html
You can buy your tickets there as well as find out more about what is going on.
I should mention that all of the money being raised is going to alternative treatments for CiCi (pretty much all treatments for pediatric brain injuries are alternative, which means insurance doesn't pay for them), and that these treatments are working!!! She can now do push-ups and reach up to grab things- it is incredibly exciting, but there is still a long way for them to go.

I hope to see you all this weekend!!!
