Hey everyone!

I haven't had an Elephant Project auction since last September, and with the Alzheimer's Association MEMORY WALKS coming up this October, I figured it is time to do some fundraising! And this auction will also mark the Elephant Project's two year anniversary. This summer's auction has some of my favorite celebrities going up for bidding and I am so excited to see how they sell. I will hopefully have auction previews up within a few days to show the entire auction package up for bid!

For those who don't know, The Elephant Project is an organization that I started two years ago, to raise money and awareness for the Alzheimer's Association, when my grandfather passed away from Alzheimer's disease. There is a phrase that says "elephants never forget," and in the fight against Alzheimer's disease, we want all those affected to "never forget." I have celebrities, mostly the Broadway stars that you and I love, take a picture with an elephant beanie baby and sign a special card, which are then auctioned off, along with a beanie baby, to raise money for the Alzheimer's Association. I have so far raised over $11,500 and hopefully that total will soar after the auctions this month.

I have to say, I remember when you first began this project and made your initial post about it here on the boards. It's incredible how much it's grown and how successful it's been! You're a remarkable kid, you know.

Bumping it for Dave.

The 2econd Stage cast of Next to Normal is all up and closing tomorrow night. They're all save for one at no bids (and I can assure you that one's at the minumum and not going higher from the original bidder. HEE!).

So far it's going pretty well. Sadly tonights closed with no bids for Boyd Gaines or Trekkie Monster.

Hopefully N2N night will fare better! :)
