  2. Just a drive-by hello to my galfriends! I guess I'll have to live vicariously through you once again this year. I hope y'all have a FANtastic time!!! Raise a glass in toast on my behalf, please!
  3. The Ebay auction of the autographed Gerry Butler items netted a total of $1,519.02. Thank you to all who participated! This total was divided equally three ways, one-third to The Shade Tree, one-third to Angels of East Africa, and one-third retained by Rising Phoenix Charitable Foundation. Checks are being mailed today, each in the amount of $506.34, to The Shade Tree and Angels of East Africa. Thanks to your support and generosity, along with Gerry's, in this year of 2013 we have been able to donate the following monetary gifts: The Shade Tree - $5,862.16 Angels of East Africa - $7,040.97 This is a total of $12,903.13. To all the generous donors, thank you! You have outdone yourselves once again. To Gerry, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your generosity in donating and autographing the items for us to auction. Rising Phoenix CF appreciates all of you and thanks you with humble hearts. We ask for your continued prayers and support as we move onward in our charitable endeavors!
  4. The autographed items auctioned on Ebay were NOT included in the totals announced at the top of this thread. Marlene Richter, Executive Director of The Shade Tree has already written us an eloquent acknowledgment, and I am attaching a copy for others to read. I will post separately regarding the Ebay auctioned items. Thanks everyone!
  5. On behalf of RIsing Phoenix Charitable Foundation, its officers and volunteers, I am happy to announce the net proceeds from the funds raised during the 8th Annual Gerard Butler Fan Convention and Charity Gala in Las Vegas, Nevada. $11,890.45 $6,534.63 has been remitted to Angels of East Africa and *$5,355.82 has been remitted to The Shade Tree THANK YOU, all of you, from the bottom of our hearts for your extremely generous contributions and for your continued support of Rising Phoenix Charitable Foundation and the charities it supports! (*$346.89 of the $5,355.82 represents the net proceeds from the Ebay auction of the Beowulf 'britches' from March)
  6. Congratulations, Stuart! I got all teary-eyed again over your story and the video! Thanks to your Laura for helping get all that together, and Holly and Dayna for their efforts, too! We were so hoping to get you there in "pairson" but understand completely about not being able to attend this year. Yes, how awesome that Gerry was able to give you a shout out in the video! Congrats, again, it is well deserved! Hugs and love, Katie
  7. is feeling the love for Rising Phoenix Charitable Foundation!

  8. Thank you, Kathy, for congratulating me on 7 years with GB GALS! In a way, the time has flown, in another, it hasn't. I guess it's like that in life in general. I have been blessed by the friends and fanmily I have gained by being here at GALS. I'm very thankful! Hugs to you Kathy...you're over 5 yrs. here now, correct? Katie

  9. ha ha ha!! Yep, I'm still around!!! Wow, long time no hear!! How the heck are you girlfriend?! I've missed you too! I need to get up to Nashville and have dinner with you sometime soon. We have a LOT of catching up to do!! Hugs, Katie
  10. Barb.... The emoticons were able to best express my feelings!! Katie
  11. I think we have given sufficient time to get any misdirected donations to the right place. I am pleased to tell you that a check from GALS Charitable Foundation in the amount of $520 has been mailed to The Shade Tree Shelter! Thank you all, once again, for your generous contributions!!!!! A gift of thanks and appreciation will be sent to SUSAN GIBSON. Once again, a huge thank you to all who donated on behalf of Gerry's birthday. I feel it's safe to say that he would be touched to know that this amount was raised and "paid forward". Katie/Songbird
  12. Congrats, EM!! But haven't you always been a 3 AM GAL at heart all along?! It IS quite an accomplishment! http://www.gerardbutlergals.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/default/candycane.gif
  13. ATTENTION: It appears that I screwed up the donation address to paypal! It is 'donation@galscharities.com' (donation, not donations) I am SOOO SORRY!!! If any of you paid to the incorrect address, please check your emails and see if you have a refund email from Paypal. And then, PLEASE try your transaction again, to donation@galscharities.com. Again, my apologies!! Hugs, Katie
  14. Only a few more hours left!!!! 10 bucks to get the opportunity to own one of the 'thank you' gifts is well worth it, in my opinion!
  15. Did y'all see the Gerry tote bag and Gerry mug in the first post?! Cool! Thanks for the donations so far everyone! There's still a week left to show Gerry, and The Shade Tree, THE LOVE!!
  16. Thank you so much to those who have made a donation, SO FAR... There's still a chance to snag that 'thank you' gift as we're running this promo through the end of November! Show Gerry some love while helping the women and children at The Shade Tree! Thanks all! Songbird/Katie
  17. Happy Birthday, Gerry!! Hope it's your best birthday yet!! With many many more to come! Katie
  18. Want to give Gerry a gift for his birthday, but not sure what or how? Why not satisfy that urge to gift Gerry by making a donation to GALS Charitable Foundation? GALS Charitable Foundation is collecting donations to Celebrate Gerry's 42nd Birthday! The fun starts now and runs through the end of November! 100% of all sums collected (after the electronic transaction fee) to be given directly to The Shade Tree. You can make your donations by clicking on the GCF link (above) and select "Paypal" button to donate. Or go through your Paypal account to: donation@galscharities.com (Please reference ONLY Gerry's Birthday in the payment memo section.) After all donations are collected, ONE generous contributor (making a donation of at least $10.00) will be randomly selected to receive a "thank you gift." Said thank you gift may include a beautiful 8 x 10 glossy print of Gerry, mug or tote bag! 8x10 photo, winner's choice from HQ images in GALS Gallery Tote Bag made and donated by Marlene Mug donated by cronewolfe So let's SHOW THE LOVE TO GERRY!!
