We would like to thank Kiddie Proofers of Durham for hosting this great event, and for involving the Gillie Beans FUNd!  This event was a great day in the community meeting young families! Marissa Berthelot (Gillian's baby sister) attended her first Gillie Beans Event at 7 days old! Thanks to Sandi and all of the staff at Kiddie Proofers for making this such a great event for us and for helping us to 'Find a Cure, One Jelly Bean at a Time', by raising $600.00 through this car seat clinic!  We look forward to working with Kiddie Proofers again in the future!
