March 15th! It's less than a week away!
I have to tell you, the goodness of people never ceases to amaze me. A while back I got a call from my friend Luhanna Chesley. She said that she, and her Mary Kay director, Linda Christenson, want to do a Mary Kay Fashion Show Fundraiser to earn money for Bryce and Annalise. Linda is from California and will be coming to Arizona on March 15th just to do this fundraiser for our children. She is also planning to do one in California as well. Here is the information on the one here in Arizona. We will be there with Bryce and Annalise. Anyone and everyone is welcome to come!
When: Saturday March 15th at 1pm.
Where: 8220 E. Garfield St. Scottsdale, Az.
Cost: $10 at the door.
There will be an awesome door prize, and other raffle prizes to be won!
The audience will be the judges, so we need as many people as possible to help cheer on their favorite model.
I wasn't sure what to say when Luhanna approached me about this fundraiser. It's a pride thing I guess, but it is hard to accept money from other people and to know that they are putting so much of their time toward helping our children/family when I know that there are so many other families out there who are in greater need and who go through so much more than our family does. The volunteer models are regular people just like me and you who are giving up their own time to help our children. Most have never met Bryce, Annalise, or anyone in our family and yet they want to help us. Wow! It's just amazing to me.
Luhanna has put my mind at ease through this process and made it a breeze for us. I am so very, very thankful to Luhanna, Linda, and all of the people who are volunteering as models in an effort to raise money to help with our children's daily care. Every bit of money that is raised during these fundraisers will go toward the daily costs of caring for Bryce and Annalise including feeding supplies, therapy supplies, durable medical equipment, medical supplies (that are not covered by insurance), and maybe even an adapted toy or two for Bryce.
Again, we are so, so very thankful to everyone who is working so hard to make this fundraiser a success. I know that I will not even get to meet or thank most of you personally, but I hope that you know how much we appreciate every bit of time, money, thoughts, and prayers that are spent and said in behalf of our children. We are very blessed! Thank you!
