A raffle for a dear family!

Handmade, personalized baby blanket with matching booties donated by Beth

I have grown to care deeply about a family I met through the Hearts of Hope support group that I helped start. May 23rd, Drew, their four-year-old son, had complicated open heart surgery to repair a congenital heart defect at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford. He had been there 12 days when they discovered that he had a wound infection where his surgical site is. The Doctor's are now saying he will be there an additional 2 weeks with heavy duty antibiotics. His mom and dad are there along with his 2-year-old sister, Ava. I am holding a raffle for Drew and his family. A few restaurants have donated gift certificates to raffle off including, Mikuni's, C-Webb's Center Court Restaurant, Ruth Chris's Steak House and The Waterboy. For those who live in and around Sacramento, know these are high-end restaurants and they feed you well. Raffle tickets are $10 each or three for $25. Please consider buying a raffle ticket or 2 or 3 to help this family as they endure this hurdle.

What a great thing you are doing for your own friend! Andrea is so lucky to have you as a good friend, and you are so lucky to have a connection with Waterboy to start this raffle "journey". You are a special person, especially when you do things out of the kindness of your own heart.
