Kare 11 News Featured our Calendar for Conquering Cancer and our signing event at Boulevard Restaurant.  We raised a wopping $600 selling our calendars to patrons of Dean's newer restaurant,  Boulevard.  Dean, the owner used to have Hodgkins Lymphoma Cancer so he was very generous in giving us a dedicated table, with appetizers, roses and beverages.  The patrons of his restaurant were kind enough to purchase many calendars autographed by all of the girls who were there which included:  Michelle Murphy Jopp (creator of the calendar), Jennifer Kline, Vicki Klassel, Nancy and Katheryn.  Only a few more boxes of calendars left to sell!
