Lake Nona Community Bazaar
What a success! The fundraiser was held at Spring of Life, the Methodist church down the road. Serena has attended VBS there two years in a row, and most everyone knows her.
Lori is superwoman. She arranged food trucks, including a smoothie truck and bakery truck. Publix came out to cook hot dogs, which I heard were delicious. DJ Corinthian got the crowd jamming with his tunes. A police officer doubled as a face painter at the last minute when the original woman cancelled. There was a henna artist, a caricature artist, and vendors selling art, bags, make up and more. Shaun Murray, a four time world champion wakeboarder, displayed his talents by singing with the children. I heard he was a huge hit!
Lori managed to have gift certificates donated for the raffle and various items for a kids raffle. She even reorganizing after two major last minute cancellations. The only thing Lori could not manage to pull off was getting Aaron, Michael and I home for the event. We are sad we could not make it, but ecstatic about its success. The event raised over $1000.00.
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE THAT HELPED, DONATED, AND WENT TO THIS AMAZING EVENT!!!
