One Day Closer Benefit

Save The Date
We are very excited to let you all know the details of our upcoming fundraiser! Our friends have been working hard to get all the details together and we are incredibly thankful. It will be Saturday, November 13 from 11:00-1:00 at North Monroe Baptist Church. Tickets go on sale this week and are $8. This includes gumbo, salad, bread, and a drink. Kids under 12 will get a free hot dog plate. We will have some fun activities like a photo booth and jumpers for the kids. If you would like a ticket or a few tickets please let me know. All of the proceeds of this event will go towards our adoption of our little girl from Ethiopia.

We Need Your Help with Auction Items
During the lunch, our guests will have a chance to bid on various items. We need your help getting items donated. We will auction whatever you think will sell:
~gift certificates of any kind
~basket sets
~hand made goods
~tickets to sporting events
A few examples of items that have already been donated are:
~Photo Session
~Appliqued Baby Clothes
~Bonfire Dinner Provided by the Strain Family
~Decorative Wreaths

If you or anyone you know can donate anything, please let us know. We greatly appreciate anything you can do to help us bring our daughter home!
