The time is NOW!


I’m doing the last little bit of frantic packing and making what I hope will be a comprehensive list of information for the child wranglers who have graciously stepped in to sit for my tots while Albert and I sashay across the country to help with:

The Fabulous, super-exciting, can’t-be-missed, event of the century;

Lights of Hope Auction!!!!!!!

It’s time to buy your tickets to the 2nd Annual   Lights of Hope Auction!   We have great items again this year. Join us–drink well, eat well, relax and help a portion of the 4 million orphans in Ethiopia without their own homes or their own parents to care for them.

The event is Saturday, May 8th 5:30  at The Melody Ballroom, Portland, Oregon. Tickets are $50.00 a guest or $380 for table of 8.  Contact kim@ for tickets or purchase online at  Go to events, Lights of Hope and click on Donate Now.

Tickets are selling quickly–reserve yours now!

Hope to see you there.  It will be a night filled with wonderful memories!

I hope to see lots and lots of you there!


* we finished our water fundraising with a little more than 1100.00 of the 2500.00 we needed.  We hope to add to the total with some very generous birthday gifts and some of the ‘wall of wine’ sales at the auction.  Fingers crossed, applesauce!

We’ll give a final total for this worthy endeavor next week.  In the meantime, it’s not too late to donate to clean water for the village of Kelecho Gerbi.
