We can still use more – please contact Andrea or Maria to volunteer to plan and run another fundraiser:

Thomas and James Manning Art Sale -
Margaret’s son Thomas, who is currently serving a mission for his church, completed a beautiful painting of the Mesa Temple before he left. The painting will be available as a print or on canvas and in various sizes. - Thomas has also completed 2 other paintings that will be for sale. There is another painting of the Mesa Temple, as well as a beautiful Hot Air Balloon painting. - James has also painted a surfing picture that will be available. - Information on ordering will be available on this blog as it becomes available.

"High Hopes" Benefit Concert–
Headed up by Diane Hale, featuring performers and a silent auction – possibly a bake sale. Planned for April or May. - We are in need of items for the silent auction, as well as a committee to run the auction. - A bake sale before and during intermission may be another way to raise money at this event. If someone is interested in running the bake sale and getting items to sell, that may help as well.

Planned for end of April or sometime in May. Date will be forthcoming. - We are in need of services for the auction. If you are able to donate a service, please contact Andrea or Maria at the email addresses or phone numbers above.

  1. I can donate a boutique style baby girl shower basket for the auction. I also would like to donate items for the bake sale.

  2. My family and I will get together and work out some things we can do to help and things we could donate. Do we know any dates for fundraisers? I'm so sorry that Margaret has to go through this. We'll help all we can.
