THANK YOU! Annual Fundraising Jewelry Sale!
Our 2nd Annual Fundraising Jewelry Sale (of jewelry made by you and I ) was a great success! We raised nearly $2000 to help get the talented kids in the Steel Angels steel drum band from Akron, Ohio to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade! Whoo hoo!
Who are the Steel Angels? I was inspired by my friend, Christie Kern – and her pal Angel Lawry.
Angel founded ‘The Steel Academy’ in Akron, Ohio – a school for kids who learn differently. They have an all steel drum band and made a huge impact on us with a performance earlier this year. Christie is always finding ways to help this group, and now I know why. An amazing group of kids and teachers who believe in the gift each person inherently has to offer.
The Angels need another year of fundraising to get to the parade, so the proceeds from our sale will help them get there in 2016. (Learn more about the Steel Academy by clicking here.)
