Lone Star Baby Banquet and YOU

So maybe you're sick of hearing about our adoption. Hey, grow a heart! (smirk) Now, I will talk about it some more. Mostly about our banquet/bbq/fundraiser.

I am so excited about this event! I hate to even charge a ticket price, but, uh, it's a fundraiser so I have to. Tickets start at $25 but you can pay more than that if you want to- it's going toward a great cause. Adoption costs vary, based on the specific agency or baby, but we know it could cost $25,000.00 by the time we're done.

That night there will be a barbecue dinner and entertainment- Leah Nelson will dance and there will some unplugged Radiants, and more! We will also be holding a silent auction - if you have a business or some service you'd like to contribute, please get in touch with me or Julie Davis.

I'm considering doing a webstream from part of the night as well, we'll see if that works out.

this flyer was designed by Josh Brown and I LOVE it. You should hire him for any of your graphic design needs, because he rocks. 

I designed this page, so don't blame Josh :)

I know $25 for dinner is a lot, I live here in the real world. I'm going to quote my friend Tracie, here and say, "You're not here for a good deal." We're here, banding together, to help a baby. We're putting our money where our mouth is and getting something done. 

I want you all at this party, because a) parties aren't that fun by oneself and b) your ticket cost helps a baby that might otherwise not be helped. So, join with me! Tighten your belt a notch and skip some Starbucks or McDonald's, or for those of you looking scornfully at this page, WHOLE FOODS and chip in! 
Oh, and our homestudy visit is today at 3. Woot!
