"I was worth the wait" ...FUNraiser

Please be a part of the "Journey to our Beloved(s)"  FUNraiser...

With each journey to and through adoption there is a story to tell that gives insight into all that was poured out.  For some it may be financial mountains to overcome, others have hiccups along the way with  paperwork, or wait times that increase and open the door to discouragement, and the list goes on.  It's easy to become weary; this journey is not for the faint of heart. We have personally experienced all of these things at one time or another.

But that is not the news I want to share, the GOOD and AMAZING news is that each and every child is worth the wait. 

To celebrate each child whether you are waiting or home with your child(ren) we are doing a FUNraiser t-shirt sale.  

Our sale starts today March 14th and ends on Wednesday March 28th. This is a pre-buy sale

Davis Family Adoption Fundraiser | Dinner & Silent Auction

Welcome Family, Friends and Business Associates!!

We are excited to have you join us on the evening of Saturday, March 24th from 5:30p-8p for a dinner and auction at the Vineyard Boise.  This event is to help raise money for our adoption of two precious girls from Ethiopia.  We cannot wait to bring them home and love on them!

They say that it takes a village to raise a child.  I know that is true.  The biggest hurdle to overcome with adopting is the expense; it literally costs thousands of dollars. And while we have paid several thousand already we still need your help. We have a small window of time to raise the remaining $25K before rainy season and the courts close. It sounds like a lot to have to fundraise; but I was looking through my contact list of almost 3k people and realized something. If each person gave $9, we'd easily make the $25k.  We would appreciate it if you would please pass on the information for this fundraiser to your family, friends and business associates. 

We have chosen to have a dinner and auction on Saturday, March 24th at 5:30p.m.  It will be a lasagna dinner and dessert. Beverages will be available for a minimal cost.  There will be a silent auction as well as a live auction during dinner. We have donations coming in from all over our community for the auctions.  You will be surprised with some of the great items we've received; everything from lower priced items to upper end items with the retail value of $3000.  We also will be selling raffle tickets for your chance to win an iPOD shuffle.

All money raised will go towards our adoption and travel fees to bring our soon to be daughters home.  We will be setup to accept cash, check or credit.

Tickets can be bought online or at the door.  If you're not going to buy in advance, please let us know that you are planning on coming.  We want to ensure that everyone has plenty to eat and bid on.

Thank you kindly,
