It’s been a fun 2 weeks!!

We have been selling tickets like crazy and I hope there are enough for everyone. We are filling up our fundraiser for Wed. the 28th at the Pavilion and it going to be a great time for everyone.

Last week I sent out an email to some people I know asking for help and we were hugely blessed by DJ & Lynette at Door of Faith. They arranged to have Rachel come over from their staff for a month to help Lupita and me until we can find some more people to help staff the house. Carol & I would stay at the house on Lupitas day off. I can’t stay there by myself so we need to find someone to fill in and stay here at night with Lupita. Rachel is great with the girls and is already a valuable asset for us.

We had a “pre-party” event with some friends from Mexicali, Calexico and El Centro who came down for a fun time with all of us at Casa de Fe. Miguel and everyone came down to spend time with the girls and serve us a lunch that never stopped. We had hamburgers, carne asada, hot links that were too hot for the kids and all of the trimmings to go with it. It was fun hanging out with everyone and we’re hoping to make it an ongoing event here at the house. They brought some really nice clothes for the girls, had a HUGE piƱata and made us all feel special. The girls had a great time and Tia, Rachel & I enjoyed hanging with everyone and getting a break with some adult time. It was also very cool seeing these tough off road guys melt when the baby was passed around and they ended holding her longer than the ladies. Life is good.

I am asking you all for some help!

With what has been happening in the last few weeks, the marketing that was usually done for our event has been delayed. I am asking you to help us make this an event on the 28th at the Pavilion at El Dorado Ranch that will memorialize Carol like never before here in San Felipe. We are having a superb dinner with live Rock N Roll for dancing the night away. We’re also having a silent auction with many incredible items, including a painting from Louis Cogley and many hand crafted pieces from the San Felipe Artist Guild. Carol will be there with us, let’s celebrate the vision.
