The 6th annual Like A Mother’s Love was, by all counts, a great success!
We can’t thank the many participants, donors and volunteers enough. About 100 people attended and we raised close to $19,000. Most important of all, we had lots of fun!
With nearly 80 items in the Silent Auction, there was something for everyone—and in every price range, starting at $7. One item went for $1,000! The Silent Auction alone raised $5,685—proof that many people working together can do amazing things!
What does this mean for Home of Grace?
With the money raised, the Term Two school fees for all 52 children were sent, meaning they were all able to return to school on Monday for another term.
Funds were donated to the Wish List for sustainability projects and for 15 beds, meaning that 15 children will no longer have to sleep on the floor. The remaining funds will go a long way to help throughout the year with meeting the regular $5,000 monthly expenses of food, clothing and medical care. That is great news indeed!

If you were not able to attend, you missed this short video greeting from Maxwell, the Manager at Home of Grace.
