Kate Hansen Day

Our local Chick-fil-A is owned by Greg and Laurie who are some wonderful people. Their marketing manager, Angela, is also an amazing lady who came up with the idea of a Kate Hansen Day at Chick-fil-A. They advertised for the day on their business marquee, on our elementary school marquee and distributed flyers to all of the local elementary schools. They put a donation bucket on the counter at the restauant and pleged to donate a perecentage of the total day's sales to The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in honor of Kate Hansen. We were there from 12-2 and it was packed! The customers had to park in neighboring business parking lots because it was so busy.

It was neat for Kate to have so many friends stop by and show their support and amazing for us to again realize how many people truly love and support her. We had church friends, swim team friends, preschool friends, elementary school friends, TNT friends, neighborhood friends and teachers come out for the day. When Summer, one of Kate's little friends saw her, she ran up to Kate smiling and said, "It's your day Kate!". Kate just beamed back and said, "Yep".

We are so grateful to Greg, Laurie and Angela for putting this on and for being generous with their time and resources. I'll post the final donation amount as soon as I find out what it is. Yea for Kate Hansen Day!

This is so awesome! It made me cry to read it, it makes me miss you guys more and more. I have to get out there and visit you!


I can't TELL you how touched I was to read this. I vote for a Greg, Laurie and Angela day! The "average people" will come through every time! I love hearing stories like these, but especially so when it is so personal. You're lucky to be surrounded with such a caring community.
