We did it!! See you in New Orleans!

The team has reached its Indiegogo donation goal!!! A huge thanks is due to everyone who contributed! For those who did make a contribution, you will receive an electronic shoutout on our Facebook page, as well as in an upcoming blog. We are so grateful to have such supportive friends and family! We couldn't have done it without you!

A huge thanks is also due to those who came to our benefit performance last Wednesday at Omonia Cafe in Astoria! The performance consisted of a collection of popular and original songs sung and played by our talented team members, including "You've Got a Friend in Me" (Toy Story), "I Can Go the Distance" (Hercules), "Royals", and several others.  I know I speak for all of the team members when I say we had a blast performing for everyone (and we enjoyed the delicious treats)! Thank you, Omonia Cafe and friends!

In other exciting news, winners of the raffle have been drawn! If your ticket was drawn, a team member will contact you with instructions on how to redeem your prize.

With that being said, the team has been hard at work finalizing last-minute donations and preparations for the trip. In today's final meeting, our teaching groups solidified lesson plans for our time at the Shalom Zone, and the team discussed logistics for our arrival in New Orleans. Only 10 more days until the fun begins!!

As second-year team member, I cannot describe how excited I am to return to New Orleans. It is a truly life changing experience, as all of our first-timers will soon discover.

Stay tuned for another update. We'll see you in New Orleans!!
