Thank you for another successful fundraiser for the projects in Malawi August 2013! We are so grateful to our sponsors and our sewers and all that attended or sent items for the auction. We had a surprise visit by The King of Rock N Roll, Elvis himself which added a lot of fun to the evening. Everyone really had a good time. “El Kabong” the band out did themselves and kept the dance floor full! Thank you one and all!!!!
One incredible opportunity has come up as a result of the auction. Two of our best supporters from Louisville, KY, not only came up with goodies for the auction, but brought two gorgeous canvas paintings for auction. The artist, Fifi LeFan, was moved by the pictures of the children in little dresses, that she painted two gorgeous paintings. We displayed them at the auction although a better place would have been an art show. The starting bid is $300 although by this artist, similar paintings have reported sales of $1500. We are thinking we may put them out for bid to those who have the heart and decor for such works of art. More details will follow. I’ll post pictures here and also under “Various Events” from the Sock Hop.
Because of your generosity we are very close to raising the money for all the projects we are wanting to do in August. We will be feeding kids, teaching, opening a well, two medical mission days, and distributing thousands of dresses and hundreds of Buckets of Hope. We will also be repairing hut roofs for widows and child-headed families. Your generosity changes lives and we’re so grateful! Thank you so much!!!
