Hey everyone – I am so sorry for the lag between posts, but I was super busy getting ready for The Harvest Cup! My husband Jeremy co-founded this event, and there was a team of 5 of us (myself, Jeremy, Peter, Scott, and Ellen) busting our asses behind the scenes making sure it was a success – and it was! So what is The Harvest Cup? The Harvest Cup (THC) is a cannabis competition and vendor trade show that was held for the very first time at the DCU Center in Worcester, Massachusetts, on December 16 & 17, 2017. One of my major responsibilities was planning a VIP Kick Off Party for the Friday night before the event – for up to 700 people. I had never undertaken such a huge endeavor before, and I am so thankful to my daughter and my friends for helping me whenever I needed it. Andrea came over and helped me turn donated items into gift baskets, as well as donating products for a cool cannabis-themed gift basket! Jen came over and helped me laminate & cut photo booth props. Lindsey helped me stuff 1500 gummy bears into baggies, two at a time. LOL And Cassidy did whatever I needed her to do whenever she could. That’s my girl. Steph, Kathryn, Nikk, Kerri-Lynn, Greere, Jenn C., Jenn L., Thais, Jenni, Tim, Darnelle, Rob, and Leia… thank you SO MUCH for your donations or help in securing donations for prizes for the VIP party! I got an amazing new tattoo (and made a new friend) from Thais at Ideal Americana Tattoo… see:
And Thais donated 2 T-shirts and 2 gift certificates for 20% off the total price of a tattoo with her at the shop. Let me tell you, the winners were psyched! We ran a silent auction type raffle and I am super proud to say we ended up donating the total proceeds of $1500.00 to the New England Veteran’s Alliance! Here are some pics from the night:
I’ll be back soon with a post about the actual event. We have already started planning for The Harvest Cup 2018, so stay tuned! You can stay up-to-date by visiting our site at www.theharvestcup.org or by joining our Facebook group here. Peace.
