Earlier, Jessica posted about "And You Were There Too" -- the special event Erasing the Distance organized for National Eating Disorders Awareness Week featuring Abby Sher.
The event earned some publicity! Sarah Jindra, covered the evening for her "Good News Only" site InspireMeChicago. If her name sounds familiar, it's because she also is the traffic reporter for Chicago Public Radio! Here is the video coverage:
Another lingering benefit of the event...?
(In addition to the most important benefit of shedding light on mental illness, of course!)
Well, the lucky winners of the raffle are now enjoying their raffle prizes, such as personal coaching, a 1-hour massage, or a home design consultation.
There were many AWESOME raffle prizes donated. So while the event was free & open to the public, the raffle raised money to benefit ETD. Hooray!
