Maxie's Benefit - So soon!

As I mentioned yesterday, I was at Golden Road Brewing on Monday to go over the logistics of Maxie's Birthday Benefit with their lovely and helpful staff.  I have to say that seeing the space again - it was SO much better than I even remembered it in my head.

After seeing their private event space, Chloe's, you will all leave thinking about what kind of event you can book there.  It is so RAD!  Plus, we have the whole side lawn (which is huge) to ourselves from 10:30 - 12 before the general public joins us there (because your kids will NOT want to leave this place).  There is a life-size Connect 4 and a life-size Jenga, a Foosball table, air hockey and much more - plus we will have some of our own stuff going on as well - face painting and crafts supervised by the sitters being donated to our event by  There will be two brewery tours that you can sign up to go on: each one lasts about an hour, kids are welcome. Everyone who plans on participating in the brewery tour must wear flat, closed toed shoes.

Inside of Chloe's there will be lots of delicious food (this is not regular pub food - I swear - everything is delicious - with lots of vegan and vegetarian options as well), beer that is brewed RIGHT THERE, and of course, non-alcoholic beverages as well for adults and kids.  Golden Road is giving us everything at close to their cost and then our sponsors have helped to bring the price down even further.  You will enjoy the day and I promise you will feel good about supporting the cause - protecting babies!

A lot of my friends have been working really hard on our silent auction.  I am so impressed with all of the wonderful items that they have secured for us!  There will be a lot of great stuff, including, but not AT ALL limited to:

SO MANY items from Cuisinart - coffee maker, hand blender, kettle, snow cone machines....ETCETERA!  
Belly Dancing Classes
Jedi Training and Fencing Classes
Signature Massage at DTox Day Spa
Pure Barre 10 class series (in Brentwood and Woodland Hills)
Magic Castle Entrances
Universal Studios Tours passes
Disney passes
Cancun vacation
Yo Gabba Gabba Live Show & Backstage Passes 
Costa Rica private villa
Restaurant gift certificates 
Private Pilates Lessons
Xbox Kinect
Nutrition/Life Coaching
Landscape Design
Signed Sports Collectors Items 
Sewing Lessons 
and Kids Packages

Listen, I know you aren't coming for the auction and face painting.  I know you would be coming to support us.  And, I know it is a little scary to see us - because we lost Max and you know that this event will be "bittersweet" for us.  But, I promise that it will be a fun day, that there will be light throughout the afternoon that shines down on all of us, and that you will feel good about being there and helping us to honor Maxie's memory.  It's ok for you to bring your children - in fact - our whole event has been designed so that those of you with children will have as much fun as those of you without.  We want to see your kids.  I promise.  

Please, please come.....and please register ahead of time.  I do need to give the venue a head count so day-of registration is discouraged (it's possible, but not preferable :))

Sunday, October 20th - 10:30 am  - 2 pm!
