Fundraising Luncheon for SafeChild & 6th Annual Dorcas Thanksgiving Breakfast

During the past 24-hours, I have had the pleasure of attending fundraising events for two really amazing organizations.  Yesterday, November 8th, I was a guest of my friend, Virginia Anthony, at the SafeChild Annual Fundraising Luncheon.   The event was held at the Raleigh Downtown Marriott and there was 504 people at the luncheon!

SafeChild is an amazing organization that was started 25 years ago with a mission of preventing child abuse and building stronger families.  Two different families shared their personal testimonials of how SafeChild has positively impacted their lives over the years.  Each table featured a centerpiece of a handmade blanket that will be given to a child who is being treated and cared for by the loving volunteers at SafeChild.

6th Annual Thanksgiving Breakfast for Dorcas Ministires

Today, November 9th, I attended the Dorcas Ministries 6th Annual Thanksgiving Breakfast, held at Prestonwood Country Club in Cary.

Dorcas Thanksgiving Breakfast

I think I have attended this event for at least 5 of the past 6 years and some of those years I have served as a Table Captain.  This year I attended as a guest of Nancy Seymour of Atlantic Tire.  Dorcas is one of my favorite organizations in Cary and the room was packed FULL this morning!  Dorcas serves those in our community who are facing a crisis and the personal testimonials shared this morning were very powerful and heartbreaking all at the same time.

We are so thankful to have Dorcas here in Cary and for all the help they provide.  It is exciting to know that Dorcas Ministries will be celebrating their 50th Anniversary next year!  They have some cool events planned in 2018 to celebrate, so stay tuned for more!
