Early in the summer, one of our friends, Laura Cannon, came to us with an idea to combine the book launch for her new book, The Conscious Entrepreneur, with a fundraiser for Avergan Foundation. Tom and I have known Laura for years and she was also the officiant for our 10 year wedding vow renewal. Needless to say, we jumped at the chance and gave a BIG YES to Laura.
The event was held on July 20th and attended by friends and family of Laura and they were just so supportive of Avergan Foundation as well. Local businesses like Metropolitan Kitchen & Grill and Blackwall Hitch donate gifts for our raffle, and pulling winning tickets was a fun way to end the evening. Great food was providing by Putting on the Ritz Catering and Krista Jones from Rising Tide Society made her famous mojitos for all to enjoy.
Thanks to Madison Short Photography for taking all of the amazing photos of the event. Also, so appreciative for The Rising Tide Society for hosting the event and to Charlotte Jarrett Events for planning and styling the whole event. So many sponors, businesses and supporters came together for Laura and her launch. We were so happy that we could support her and support Avergan Foundation too. And, the best news is that we raised $620 at the event. And, as with all of our fundraising events, all proceeds will be added to our scholarship fund to support children on the autism spectrum that need early intervention services.
