{Upcoming Event} Handsmade for Helping

A few months ago I designed a sweet purple, black and white dessert table for the Supportive Housing for Young Mothers Cabaret night {read about it here}.  Since they had a small silent auction at the event I thought it would be fun to donate a mini dessert table, hoping it might lead me to another "giving back" opportunity.  

Lisa approached me that night with amazing enthusiasm for the dessert table and shared her vision for her own fundraiser to support children in Ethiopia.  I was so happy when I learned she was the high bidder!

On November 3rd Lisa will be hosting Handsmade for Helping, a unique fundraiser to support children in Ethiopia through the work of the Canadian Humanitarian Organization for International Relief (CHOIR).
The event is a specail holiday shopping evening where one of a kind handmade items can be purchased.  Artists, potters, rug hookers, jewlers, visual artists, fibre artists and more will be donating items to sell.

This proves to be a wonderful fundraiser.
 Tickets can be purchased at the door for a donation of $25.
