Our fund raising two day event we had this last weekend was a huge success! We hadfourteen $1.00 raffles and our Henry Silver Eagle 22 rifle $10.00 raffle. We had several carnival games for the kids, we sold popcorn, cotton candy, peanuts, sodas and water. We also had silly string, solar dancing flowers, LBFOL T-shirts, pins, pendants and bottle cap necklaces. Friday night brought some rain but it didn’t dampen our spirits. We had kids lined up to play the $1.00 carnival games even in the rain. A big thanks goes out to DeAnna N, LaRae L, Diane H, Diane C, Tanya A, Cody A, Meghan N, Gloria T, Debbie C and Donna R for all of their help during the two day event. They were all a huge blessing to me and I appreciate each of them so much. A big thanks to all who came out to give their support through donations or buying something. We were touched by the expressions of thankfulness from two elderly ladies who had received LBFOL baskets earlier this year. They wanted to stop by and tell us how grateful they were and wanted to donate to help others be blessed with a LBFOL basket. Nothing touches your heart more than when you hear the stories of how our elderly are struggling everyday with decisions on what they can purchase or put back until next time. This two day event has helped us continue to help those in need and with your donations we can continue on through out the year. If you would like to help us help others you can send your tax deductible donations through our pay pal link or our mailing address. Each donation is greatly appreciated!!
