Season Greetings from the Blue Ribbon Foundation!

December 27, 2012

As we are wrapping up 2012 and getting ready to head into 2013, I find myself taking a step back and reflecting on the past year. I still vividly remember January 1, 2012 as I sat in my tiny one bedroom apartment anxious and excited for what the new year was going to bring. And now, as I sit here on December 27, 2012 in my office, I can say with a sigh of relief that I survived my first Fair as the Sponsorship Director, married my best friend, and moved into a slightly larger, although still stuffed to the gills apartment.

The Blue Ribbon Foundation also had a busy but successful 2012. We kicked off the new year with the annual Corndog Checkoff campaign, and to date have raised over $67,000. Next came Fan Fair and Grandstand ticket sales, and shortly after that we found ourselves opening the doors to our largest event (besides the Fair, of course) - the Corndog Kickoff.  It was a record breaking year for the Foundation, and we are already starting the planning process for 2013, crossing our fingers that we will be able to compete with our wildly successful 2012. 

As we reflect on our successes from 2012, we want to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making this past year one for the books. We feel so blessed to have great donors, patrons, supporters and friends, and we could not do everything we do without each and every one of you. We hope you had a very Merry Christmas and are able to ring in the New Year in style. From all of us at the Blue Ribbon Foundation - Happy New Year!
