I HAVE REACHED AND EXCEEDED MY FUNDRAISING GOAL OF $ 5,000.
I am so thrilled by this that I can't even think of anything clever to say. Absolutely gobsmacked. Not only have family and friends contributed, but my mother's co-workers went out of their way with incredibly generous donations - in the name of her pierogi! Gratitude.
And of course, the food wouldn't have materialized without the assistance of Team Pierogi: Julia Kruk, Mary Kruk, Zofia Kruk, Teresa Kulisz, Ella Sudak and her sister Hania. And Robert Kruk, official taste-tester.
