Tasfa Ethiopia

In Amharic, the word “tasfa” means hope.  I am often struck by how much the children of Ethiopia could accomplish, if they were only given a little bit of tasfa and a chance to make it happen.  Along those lines, we have decided to name our Denver event this year “Tasfa Ethiopia.”  It will be held at the Altitude Peak Fitness center (a huge, wonderful space donated by the owner – and don’t worry, we’ll totally swank it out), on October 9.  We’ll be doing a silent auction type event, with open bar and light appetizers.   Tickets are $25/person, and can be purchased by contacting Emily Andronici (andronici9@yahoo.com).

If you are an artist, store owner, masseuse, or do anything else that would potentially make a great item at Tasfa, please contact us to discuss your donation.  We are currently in the process of procuring items for the event, and we’ve already got some amazing things to sell.  But we can always use more!

We’ll also be doing a family photo shoot from 1:00pm – 4:00pm on the day of the event.  Greg Caddick, a professional photographer who has presented exhibitions across the country, has once again graciously donated his time to take photos of you and your little (or big) ones.  If you’re interested in reserving a time for the photo shoot please contact Tracy Stevens (tracy_stevens@comcast.net).

We’re really excited about this event – and hoping it will be a huge success.  Hope to see you there!
