Our dinner/concert on Thursday was a stellar event and a very successful fundraiser. We were overwhelmed with the support and generosity of everyone who attended. We will do everything in our power to make sure the contributions we received will go to excellent use in helping the people Rising Star serves.
We had about 150 people come to enjoy yummy Indian food from India Palace and awesome performers including Some Fellow Folksters, Sabrina Squires and Austin Cameron dancing, and Kara Henderson. Our spectacular un-rehearsed emcee Sean Strebel kept us all entertained through technical difficulties until the very end when the raffle winners were announced. We were all warmed by the glowing ambiance and good feelings of brotherly love and humanitarian support. (wow, that's really cheesy what I just wrote - but it's true!)
With the sale of tickets, desserts, handmade flower pins and raffle tickets, we made hundreds of dollars to benefit the leprosy affected of India. We were absolutely ecstatic with the results. Thank you so much to everyone who participated in the magical evening.
We leave for Asia in one week and we are so excited. We'll keep you updated!
