I do not have much time to chat this morning, but I wanted to share with everyone what is upcoming. First off, I want to thank Dennis of the VFW Hall in Gordonsville, Virginia, for his generosity. It was greatly appreciated and I am humbled by it. We will be hosting a fundraiser on November 7th. It will have LOTS of vendors with great items for your early Christmas shopping. We will have food, music, 50/50 drawing, and lots more. If you are a vendor or know of one, please send me an email to reserve your spot. We will reserve spots on a first come, first serve basis so make sure to get your reservation in early.
Also, we will need volunteers to work the event ... to bake items for the bake sale, etc. As you know, this fundraiser is to help raise money for my sister's family. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in June and has lost lots of time from work, which in turn means a great loss of finances. She is self-employed so she has no PTO, vacation time, etc. No work ... no pay. She has missed a great deal of time due to surgeries, hospital stays, and she has another surgery to overcome the latter part of September. It has truly placed a hardship on them.
I will be starting the raffle ticket sale in the next week or so. The funds from this are to offset the expenses incurred on behalf of setting up the fundraiser. The balance of all funds will go to The Rogers Family Fundraiser account. The winner will be drawn at the fundraiser event on November 1st. We will videotape the drawing and show it on Facebook. You do not need to be present to win.
Have to run ... please share and let's make this a big success. I truly believe that God blesses those who are a blessing to others. It is Biblical!!!
