Update on our Pajama Dinner at Cab's

I just wanted to share with all of you who so kindly participated in, and donated to, our Pajama Dinner at Cab's. This is a note from Jessica, Hephzibah Children's Association - Western Auxiliary President, about your amazing generosity:
"The Auxiliary will use the funds raised to finance a
"Good Bye, Good Luck" duffel bag program. When
children are dropped at Hephzibah's Diagnostic Shelter
they typically have a grocery bag holding all of their
belongings (maybe 2 or 3 things). When they are
placed in a foster home, an adoptive home, or returned
to their birth parent(s) they usually leave with one
or two trash bags filled with their stuff. Amazing
companies like yours are so generous to these
So our Auxiliary is buying duffel bags with a HCA bag
tag for them to carry all of their clothes, shoes, and
toys. We'll include a toothbrush, toothpaste, brush,
and memory book for them to fill with new memories."

Thank you again to all who came to the dinner, who bought raffle tickets, and to the wonderful stores who donated raffle items, including; Cab's, Georgia Rae, Fuschia, Renaissance Art Studio, Paisley, String Theory, Cheveux Salon & Day Spa and Shannons. And to Cab's who donated a portion of the dinner price to HCA, as well as to Georgia Rae and Fuschia who, along with Knickers, donated a portion of their sales for the week of the event to HCA.
