As many of you know, Rachel and Ken are having a fundraiser to raise money to help them adopt "Joshua" (not his real name) from a Eastern European country. Joshua is 3 1/2 years old, has Down Syndrome, and needs heart surgery as soon as possible. We are all excited to bring him home to his "forever family".
The event will be this coming Friday, Dec. 3rd, at Bridgewood Community Church in Blaine. Tickets are $5, and if you get them ahead of time you will be entered into a drawing for a door prize! You can also get your ticket at the door. The silent auction starts at 6 pm, and the concert starts at 6:30. The event will end at 8pm. Music will be provided by The Marty Rosendun Family Singers and Tricia Bownik. I've also heard my son-in-law (Ken) might be providing some intermission piano music. I hope so because he plays beautifully! There will be free cookies, and some yummy treats for sale.
Some wonderful items that will be available in the silent auction are: Chocolate lover's basket, a baby wrap, handmade birdhouse, free fruit pie from Baker's Square, Betty Crocker basket, Thyme products, Avon products, an American Girls doll wardrobe, baskets for children, and MUCH MORE! There will also be Partylite candles for sale.
Please stop by! There are many of you I would love to see! Family, friends, fellow survivors! Even if you can't stay for the whole event, stop in and buy some homemade treats for your family!
