Finally some time to sit down and write to you to thank you for your truly amazing YOU which you gave us at the 2005 Down Syndrome Awareness Week Lunch.
I cannot begin to tell you how special it was to have you as part of the event. I knew you and only you could pull off something so poignantly and so professionally. I felt you were my secret weapon and would give that last shock value tactic that hits the nail in the head, just at the perfect time. You sure gave me that ammunition. Your fantastic skill left everyone awestruck and asking for you details. (I mean that in the nicest, most holiest of ways!).
Bruce I know you do these events for a living but I felt that this was one audience that really knew your roots.
We were very triumphant in many areas on the day. We raised $30,000. People had fun, people cried, people were inspired and many learnt things they didn’t know. We together raised awareness.
My warmest thanks to you, for support and generosity once again.
