Some of the Yoga Pants Hiking Boots readers might not know that I also hike in a ballgown sometimes. Really. It is a long story and Steve Hopkins of the Hudson Valley Chronic wrote it, so read his version. It is much better than anything I could write about my own wacky efforts to weave fundraising and dressing inappropriately into a effective fundraising.
BUT – effective fundraising has happened. My goofy little group affectionately known as g4g or “gownies” have raised $1600 bucks for flood relief for farmers in the post-Irene and Lee Catskills. Not too shabby!
