We at the Light the Way Foundation are grateful for the article and photos that appeared in Barbara Hendel's column in the Toledo Blade dated Thursday, November 15th - their support is invaluable to our mission statement.

". . . to help increase the funds available for educational programs,
to increase breast health awareness and to aid in the battle to decrease the needless deaths
from breast cancer in Northwest Ohio."

With that being said - their space is limited and we appreciate that however it is imperative that we draw attention to and thank special volunteers and local businesses that also volunteered their time, talent and treasure to support our 2nd Annual "Let's Think Pink" Pajama Party.

The photo to the right is the original photo that was sent to the Toledo Blade and the photo credit goes to Lou Anna Ervin.

You will notice 3 people in this photo,
Susan Botek, Jay Balogh and the person
not seen in the newspaper, Milissa Clark.

Mrs. Clark and her husband Joe, are the owners of Reality Marketing and Design. This couple donated endless hours to this event - using not only their marketing skills, but their design work, obtaining sponsors and other items so numerous this page is not long enough. They spent many sleepless nights because they believe in the Light The Way Foundation and our mission. It is important that they know they are not only appreciated but loved and respected!

Gene Buckland, Owner of Meredith Party Rentals spent not only hours - but days helping us coordinate the setup and lighting to make this a beautiful party that women of every age would want to attend. Even heating the event was a challenge after all we planned a party partially outdoors in November. They certainly lived up to their motto: "Parties are our specialty, not a sideline". Gene - you are amazing - thank you!
