three friends had a "fundraiser" for our dear friend who is going on a trip to the Ukraine with her husband. they go to minister to an orphanage that has special needs kids. my friend has an autistic son. she and her precious husband have big hearts for special needs kids.
well, in trying to come up with ideas to supplement the cost for them to go....we....three of her friends said, "lets have a dinner party and hire a singer and have a private concert and ask for a $25 donation!" we decided on my house because it has a pretty good "flow" factor. our dear friends, who cater, charged us practically nothing, and the "band" was two people...Adam Wright, lead singer of Act of Congress, and the INCREDIBLE Connie Skellie a violinist (with the voice of an angel)to play a home concert for us. We had a delicious dinner, some vino, and a show. well, i will say, it was MAGICAL! the candlelight behind them as they sang... the stories that they would tell in between songs were precious... the message of the Gospel was EVER PRESENT! the Lord blessed the evening. $950 was raised for my friend. it was a home run!
the photo is of my house. we moved my dining room table out and Adam and Connie stood under the chandelier and the candles were on the wall table behind them. most of the lights were off and we had chairs placed everywhere so everyone could see. we did not take any pictures. i could kick myself!
