Success, Sharing, and Scrapping!

This past Saturday and Sunday Scrapbook Royalty hosted TWO back to back events to benefit the Cancer Coping Center. Croppers gathered at It's About Time on Saturday and Pink Pineapple Scrapbooks on Sunday to create one of a kind albums for those coping with cancer and their families.

Each of the stores donated 10% of their sales. But before they sent in their contributions, the crop-goers brought in an amazing $3490.26 in donations, silent auction bids, and raffle ticket purchases!

Here are some fun facts:
Saturday 23 croppers signed up for the event!
Sunday 15 croppers were signed up!
These croppers completed roughly 47 albums for those affected by cancer!!
Saturday Silent Auctions $965
Sunday Silent Auctions $998
Raffle Saturday $284
Raffle Sunday $150
Treasures for Charity Sales (Bind-It-All and Tote Hooks) $152.70
