Family Growth Benefit Concert
MARK YOUR CALENDARS JANUARY 30th 6.30pm at Salt Palace
Our very good friends Matt and Brooke Dennis are inviting everyone to come enjoy an evening of music, food and fun, while at the same time helping us to have the opportunity to grow our family.
Here is the full story from Matt and Brookes blog http://bandmatty.blogspot.com/
Last January, after several years of trying to have a baby, we were given the disappointing news that we can't have children naturally. For the past year we have been saving and planning, we applied for a family growth grant which was denied and finally realized that with the high costs of the procedures we need, we were years away from being able to start a family. That's when we decided to put this event together and create a way where we could provide a great night out for the people we love, and the proceeds from that event could help us overcome these seemingly insurmountable medical expenses.
This has been a humbling and amazing experience thus far. Already we've had so many people who have been willing to donate their time, food, talents, rooms for the event, prizes to give away and so much more. We are truly blessed to have such wonderful friends and family and beyond, even people we don't know have been so generous to help with printing media and have given freely of their own money. It's been an extraordinary peek into the good that's inside of people just waiting to be discovered. We don't want this to be a burden or for anyone to feel any obligation to this, we really just want people to come and have an enjoyable night out. Please feel free to invite anyone else you might know who would like to come.
