We truly are still processing the experience but wanted to say a very big thank you to all of you on this day after the first Food Allergy Bloggers Conference! We’d love to gather posts about the conference in one space so please comment here with links to your blog posts and we will work on a fun way to maybe share them in our newsletter and/or future posts.
In the meantime, Erica Dermer of Celiac and the Beast blew us away with her video interviews posted in “Food Allergy Bloggers Conference Wrap-Up” (be sure to watch all ten minutes). Such a surprise this morning to see the post go up and we have to say Erica may have a future on the talk show circuit, she’s a natural.
Joel Warady, Chief Sales & Marketing Officer at Enjoy Life Foods (one of our fantastic sponsors for the conference and on our advisory team) wrote a touching blog post on the Enjoy Life Foods Blog entitled “An Embracing Community.”
We have an exit survey coming your way shortly so watch for it in the next week or so.
Congratulations to Angie Morris (Conscious Eatery) for raising the most funds on our FARE walk team, she won a free stay at the South Point Hotel and Casino. Coming in a close second was Jo-Ann Rogan (Punky Mama – she has already posted several posts about the conference!) who won a dinner for two at Don Vito’s at the South Point. David Lurie of Sun Cups (one of our sponsors – if you are reading this David be sure to check out the video link mentioned above for some rave reviews of your products!) won a free conference ticket thanks to his fundraising effort. Donations are still open though the contest is over (Food Allergy Bloggers Conference 2013 Walk Team).
Again, we are so humbled and privileged to be a part of your lives and to look around the room this weekend and see friendships form. Thank you all and may your continued journey include a little more support than you knew you had before. Most of all, thank you for believing in us.
Homa & Jenny
