You guys are AMAZING!!!


Thank you! Thank You! THANK YOU!!!

Hey everybody!  We did it!  We've surpassed our goal of $13,800!
To be perfectly honest, we knew we were setting a high bar and had hoped to reach it with a last minute push at the very end...

We should have known just how AWESOME you all really are.

We cannot thank you enough for all that you've done to help us out.  Every donation - big and small - has gone to helping us to give back!

That said...

We have one more thing that will help us shatter our goal.

We've got an online auction.  And it's AMAZING!!!

We have some unbelievable items - autographed items, spa package, meals, and you're not going to believe this, but the Kansas City Chiefs donated a Suite Experience Package for 2 people that is out of this world!!!  2 tickets to a game in a Suite, Pregame on-field passes, and parking.  Normally this would cost $2500 per ticket. 

That's right.  WOW.

We need your help again spreading the word about the auction... Email, Facebook, Twitter... shouting to the rooftops.

The auction runs through April 24, 2014 at 08:30 PM CDT.

This is the cherry on top of the $13,800 sundae!

And here's some information for those of us who are joining us on the walk:

The Walk...
As the ambassador family, Team 138 will start and lead the Walk for Babies on May 10th. We'd love to have as many of you as possible walk with us. 

March of Dimes Walk for Babies
DMACC Campus - 2006 S Ankeny Blvd.
Saturday, May 10th 
Registration is at 8:30
Walk begins at 9:30 (we'll have coffee/donuts/bagels before!)

We need to compile a list of people planning to walk with us - both for the March of Dimes and for t-shirts! 

If you're planning to walk with us, please email Melissa - - with the names of your walkers and t-shirt size. We've found a very generous t-shirt sponsor, so we'll provide everyone on our team Team 138 t-shirts for free! (note, you don't need to sign up to walk on the MoD page, just email Melissa). 

After we get the list, we'll send an email closer to the walk with details for the morning of the walk.

After the walk...
As a small thank you of our appreciation, we're planning a little celebration after the walk. Details to come soon, but we're planning to meet for (free) lunch & beer at one of our favorite places! And would love to have you join us.

Again, huge thanks from the Vogel's. We're getting ready for a TV interview next week - we'll post the link once it's ready!

All our best to you and your families!

Mike, Melissa, Logan and Caroline

P.S. - It's still not too late to donate -
