New Stuff, New Skills! Fundraising Events

When we said in our first post that we could only imagine the support and encouragement our friends and family would offer we really meant it, and now we’re seeing it in action! Some of our friends have offered to share their skills and spaces with us and with you to help bring our child home. You can support our adoption by doing or learning something new this summer!

Check the calendar for details about these fundraisers:

May 17-19 - Garage Sale
Jim & Dawn Capistrants’ home in Oakdale.
All proceeds will go toward our adoption fund. I may be jealous of whoever goes home with the vintage travel trunk!!

May 29 – Soap Making Class
Taught by Heidi Cooper at Carey Eigen’s Home in Mahtomedi.
Space is limited. RSVP required.
Soap making is a craft where the creative and the chemist unite. I have made Heidi’s soap recipe a few times and when I give it as a gift I get asked for more!

June 16 – “One more”—Group fitness workout in the park
With Greta Dvorak in Arden Hills.
One more crunch, one more burpee, one more lunge brings us closer to one more child with a forever family! Start your day with a workout in the park with personal trainer Greta Dvorak. She makes working out fun even while she’s kicking your butt!

Pasta Making Class – Details TBA.
Taught by Rachel Hardacre.
Make it better than a box! Rachel dissects a hobby until she becomes an expert. She’s done it with knitting, gardening and now pasta and you will have a great time learning from her experience.

Craft Night – Details TBA
Taught/led by me (Kelsey).
Ideas are still brewing (and so is the coffee).
