Pink Elephant Luncheon, 3.0

TULSA, OKLAHOMA - In case you think that fundraisers are limited to the middle-aged crowd, or to just people with lots of spare time, I would like you to meet my friend Cassie. She is not even in high school yet and this year she HAS raised over $5,000 for the Vera Bradley Foundation – and this was only through her sphere of influence; friends, family and schoolmates. Imagine what the future holds for this dear girl, where she can go and what she can achieve in her life. Inspired and motivated by the Pink Elephant Luncheon (3rd annual!) and its hostess, Sheri Renfrow, Cassie was determined to do whatever she could to help find a cure. When she learned that almost 70% of her school friends had been affected by this disease, it really made her decision to help much easier. Thank you, Tulsa, Sheri and especially my sweet Cassie. I look forward to watching you grow into the amazing woman you are destined to become.
