Every year people gather in Camp Hill, PA for MagicMeets. MagicMeets is a gathering of Disney podcasters, bloggers, authors, travel agencies, webmasters but most importantly Disney fans. One part of MagicMeets is an auction. The auction is held by the DWT Dream Team. The Dream Team raises money to send seriously ill children to WDW. The Dream Team is made up of members that work their butts off to make the auction a HUGE success, especially the head Dream Teamer, Pat Whitson. Without her, the Dream Team would be lost. I am a proud member of the Dream Team. There is nothing like the feeling of knowing that you're helping put a smile on a child face.
One of the items in this years auction was to be Co-Host for a day on the WDWRadio show with Lou Mongello. The moment I heard this was going to be an auction item I knew I had to have it. Now Lou and I have been friends for a few years now and I always thought being on his podcast would be fun. The day of the auction rolls around and I'm excited about bidding on "my item". I had a feeling I wasn't going to be the only person that wanted to be co-host. Little did I know that I was going to end up in a bidding war. It is a funny story but if I told you, you wouldn't have a reason to listen to the show then. The photo was taken after Lou found out that I won.
I thought winning was going to be the best part of my day but it wasn't. The best part came when the total was announced $20,000!!! This total is from multiple fundraising efforts...the auction, online donations and money given by MouseFan Travel. I think that is going to make a lot of children smile. I know it made a lot of people cry!
