So sorry for those who missed this special fundraising event, as you missed a good time and opportunity to win some amazing prizes.
And, for all those who did venture out to attend P.A.T.H.’s Holiday Fundraising Event, which took place at the Mill Valley Community Center on November 16th, I wish to give a heartfelt “Thank You”! In spite of inclement weather, other possibly competing events that same evening, not to mention so many folks who were home sick in bed with the flu… as one guest commented: “Your event was absolutely beautiful, perfectly planned and exquisitely executed".
Regardless, those who came out to support the cause enjoyed themselves. Even Rafael the Raccoon (San Rafael Chamber of Commerce’s adorable plushie mascot) made a special appearance. Check him out. Ha! Ha!
A special "THANK YOU" shout out to Midori Roseberry, Odette Boyd, Terry Bremer, Chana Fitton, Steve Cuvin, Keith A. Harward and my husband, Bill Lakes for their assistance and support. Special thanks to Mill Valley musician,Matt Lacques and vocalist, Kaye Rodden who donated their wonderful brand of live entertainment.
No less than 30 fabulous gift basket prizes were made available for raffle purposes. The event also featured a myriad of artwork, as well as an array of beautifully handcrafted/hand-beaded jewelry specifically created and donated by 17 incarcerated artists from the Avenal State Prison in California in their effort to help raise funds for the fire victims. God bless them!
And, last but not least, A HUGE "THANK YOU" to all the local businesses that so graciously and generously donated Gift Certificates and/or products for raffle, food and entertainment for this event:
