Lost & Found's GAME DAY

I've had the privilege of being on the Young Ambassador's Board for Lost & Found. Lost & Found is an amazing organization that provides grief support services (free of charge) for children, young adults and their families who are grieving the death of a loved one. Our Board decided to come up with an event that was fun and not like anything else offered in Springfield as a fundraiser. I think we accomplished that with our 1st Annual GAME DAY! It was a tailgating/watch party for the Mizzou vs. Alabama Game at Springfield Brewing Company. I was the chair of the Marketing Committee and had the honor of designing their marketing materials. I am very proud of how everything turned out. Especially the little Balloon Arch Trina, Conor and I built (yes we built it! straight from a youtube video).
The event was a huge success, exceeding our fundraising goal and receiving amazing support from local businesses and the community. We will definitely be having a second annual event next year and I am looking forward to being a part of it again. Thanks to everyone who came out to help Lost & Found!!!
