On the night of the fundraising event, Alex and I were nervous but prepared. We were
ready to present all of our material. We were anxious about how many people would actually show up at our event. It turns out about 80 people came, which was beyond our expectations. Alex and I talked with all of the people in attendance and told them about the mission.
After the event was over, we got donations and looked at each other. We knew then that we had a successful night. Over $10,000 was raised, also counting donations received earlier.
