Gems and Java 2015 - Great Success!

We are absolutely thrilled and humbled to share with you that our 4th Gems & Java event raised $51,500.00!!!  Our goal was $45,000.00 this year and because of our sponsors, silent auction and door prize donors, all who gave us gently used purses, jewellery and fashion scarves, our guests and very importantly our volunteers who gave hundreds of hours, we blew that goal out of the water. In 2014, we raised $35,000 at Gems & Java.  Our 2015 total of $51,500 is almost 50% more than we raised last year.

What tremendous joy there is in helping others.  We are very blessed to be able to bless the women and children in Ethiopia.
