Our fund raiser this year on Oct 27, 2012 “scared up” some serious fun with an amazing variety of very creative costumes, delicious food, great music and a wonderful turn out. With the help many faithful volunteers, ghosts, and southern bells, clowns and witches we had a terrific time at the lovely Fellows Creek Golf and Conference Center in Canton, MI. Supporters from out of state sent checks in lieu of their attendance. Many sent auction items for us to sell. Some drove from quite a distance to be with us and together we were able to raise over $11,500. The money raised will be used for operational expenses and shipping costs of the thousands of little dresses and britches for boys that continue to arrive daily. We are grateful for your continued support and thank you for being part of “Eat, Drink & Be Scary”.
Please join us for a FREE concert sponsored by Smile FM, featuring RUSH OF FOOLS. All the way from Alabama, they will join the MetroSouth Band and ALIVE for a special concert event showcasing their new album WE ONCE WERE. Contemporary Christian music will be featured in a fun and uplifting environment. Use this night out to visit the new MetroSouth Church building at I-75 and Eureka road, visit with your friends, encourage others and pay tribute to the work of Little Dresses for Africa. The concert is completely FREE of charge with a special Love Offering being taken up which will go 100% to Little Dresses for Africa. LDFA was chosen as the christian non profit out of hundreds of applicants. Please show your support and come out for a great time!
