On a gorgeous bluebird day, Elizabeth's mother, Cynthia Alling, arrived as Scott and Duncan Sewall were putting up PMC signs and getting ready for the crowd.
Hugs were in generous abundance.
A quiet moment before the event. Scott makes no secret of the fact that Laura Canning is the organizer and mastermind who pulls the Brooklyn event together each year. Laura demures that she has a lot of help, while Scott confesses proudly that he was responsible for cutting all the drink coupons that attendees received with their ticket purchase. It take a village :-)
Team E "Save the Boobies" bling
Team captain Scott welcomed the crowd and expressed deep appreciation for everyone's attendance and support of the endowment in his mother's memory. He also announced this year's fundraising goal of $80,000.
Did we mention that every single dollar of support is enormously appreciated? And that the entirety of every donation to Team E goes directly to Elizabeth's memorial endowment fund? We can't say those two things enough.
Elizabeth's mother, Cynthia, presented a banner to celebrate Team E's efforts since 2013.
Cynthia spoke of how much Team E means to her and all the Alling-Sewall family as a way of keeping Elizabeth's spirit and legacy alive, making significant strides toward supporting a cure for breast cancer in her memory.
Paparazzi was ever present.
