I recently had the pleasure of partnering with Angela, owner of Photography by Ajay, for "Sparks of Hope", 2013 benefit auction at the Convention Center. Sparks of Hope is a non profit organization whose mission is to grant wishes to children that are sexual or physical abuse survivors. Their wish could be anything from a new pair of shoes, to a birthday party, to a musical instrument to play. I was very impressed with the organization, the people supporting it, and of course, Lee Ann Mead, the founder of Sparks of Hope.
What a great mission they have, to help survivors, heal and eventually, thrive! It was very inspiring to hear the stories and heartbreaking at the same time. Events for the night included a silent auction, gourmet dinner and dessert, along with special guests Amy Roloff of the show "Little People, Big World", Timber Joey, and Mike Fourtner (from Discovery Channels’ Deadliest Catch), among other VIP guests.
Please support this fine organization, as they do great work!
