Wow! That's awesome. Linda was really understating it when she said it was at least $5,000.

I knew I was!! I just wasn't sure HOW much I was understating it!
Our hope was to announce the real total right there in the room, but we still had more loose ends.

I was pretty sure we were over $8000, and likely over $10,000, but we didn't want to commit that early!

I am THRILLED that everyone had such a good time, met new friends and all showed up ready to help Give Kids the World.

Wow, that's a lotta dollars!

I have to say the often times when you have any kind of 'event' planned for a long time you build it up in your head. And build. And build. And build. And when that day(s) finally comes it never really lives up to what you've built up in your head. But driving home with my wife Kim (#1 women in Tastykake eating contest) we both agreed that this not only lived up to what we had built up in our minds but far exceeded it!

It was just really amazing meeting and spending time with everyone. Getting a chance to score some cool Disney stuff, seeing another live pod cast, sharing my first Butterscotch Krimpet with Corey, bowling with the Dis crew and just plain ol' having a good time chatting with everyone! It was especially fun chattin' with Shaunathan form the Dis, he's a sweetheart!

:D

Did anyone miss out on getting a NJ DIS MEET t-shirt??

I have a few left and would love to sell the rest of them. (More money for GKTW )
I have 4 LARGE and 6 X-L. Contact me and I will be happy to arrange for you to have a gorgeous lime green shirt of your very own!

They are $15 each and I will mail it to your door!
Respond here or PM me.

I had a blast. Thank you to all the organizers. Thank you to the Podcast team for making the trip up north. I still can't believe that I actually met the folks who have entertained me for over six years.

The podcast is up on iTunes. I think I was a little nervous when asking my question. Does anyone know where to find Galvesteen
