A Generous Community (MTDSA)

For the past 13 days, a small group of friends have been busy sharing a very special event that our friend Jessie has worked so hard on.  We have contacted many people, whether friends and business owners we know personally, or business we frequent or new businesses to our area. I think I can speak for all of us when I say that we are blown away with the generosity of our friends and communities! 
Tonight, three of us sat down and worked for hours on the finishing touches for tomorrow's silent auction. There are so many amazing services and products that were generously donated to help raise funds for the lending library for the Montana Down Syndrome Association. 
So here's the thing... We've worked hard and so many people have given so selflessly, that we really need this to be a success. The lending library is a resource that has been a long time missing from our community. 

If you're local, you can help in a couple of ways. Please share the above photo with your friends to help spread the word about the art show and silent auction. Please bring a friend or two (or ten!) down to The Starving Artist tomorrow (Tuesday Sept 30th) from 6-8pm to hear about the joys and pain of Down Syndrome. The silent auction will begin right around 7pm and we need some bidders for this fabulous gifts! We have everything from Silpada jewelry to Lost Trail lift tickets... 80/20 personal health coaching to Velata chocolate and cheeses... A year of guitar lessons, handmade goodies, thousands of dollars in gift certificates to many places in our valley, a few sessions with our most talented photographers in the area, Scentsy and so much more! Delicious coffee, incredible ice cream ($1.50 Big Dipper scoops!) and smiles will be in abundance. You definitely want to be there. 

If you live too far or can't make it tomorrow evening, please say a prayer that we'll have a high attendance of bidders and that the night will be a success. 

Off to bed so I can attack my final list tomorrow. Excited.
