MONGO Success!

We would like to thank each one of you that came out for our Going MONGO fundraiser last night!  And BIG thanks to the BD's Arena crew for a great night!

Gettin' my grill on!

Khris is really good at this!

Our friends, the C family came all the way from the Cleveland area...  what a blessing!  The shirts we wore were from their adoption fundraiser.  You can check out their adoption journey HERE.

He liked this way too much... 
I think with his new skills-on-the-grill he's always got employment options ;-)

Look out, I have "swords!"

Two of my 3 running the raffle & ornament table...  so much fun (=

There were many more not captured on film too!

We raffled off a basket containing Just Love Coffee with the Fa, La, La, La, La Christmas CD, travel mugs and a box of Cheryl's Cookies.
The winning raffle ticket was drawn around 8:30.  Congrats to BG our winner - Enjoy those goodies! 

Over $800 was raised from ticket sales, raffle drawing, ornament sales and donations.  We are more than blessed by this generous outpouring on behalf of The Rogi and bringing our newest member home from Ethiopia.

The Christmas ornaments that we made were a hit, so if you'd like to purchase one, they are $5 each (+$1 shipping unless I hand it to you) and we can make them with plain or patterned felt.  Here's some samples:


Check out the Active Adoption Fundraisers page for color & pattern options.

Thank you again for partaking in the Rogers Family Adoption Journey and have a Merry Christmas!
