Ma's Farm Festival

Welcome to the 1st Annual
Ma’s Farm Festival
Mark your calendars and join us
Sunday, July 22, 2007
Fun with Family and Friends
Doing something to help Break the Pattern of Domestic Violence
Start the day (8 am) with a walk/run, and then spend the day with family and friends.
Music by the Bog Creek Band and other entertainment throughout the day.Shop (9am-5pm) the vendors, the farmer’s market, join in the art projects (11am-2pm) for the kids, participate in the silent auction and raffle full of great gifts and items, have a picnic and help us raise awareness and funds.
Unfortunately, many of us know someone who has or is suffering through domestic violence. Maybe you don’t know what to do. After Sue’s senseless death last summer, we chose to do “something”. We hope to raise funds for safe places and raise awareness to stop domestic violence. This is a local and all too frequent problem. The festival will raise funds that can be used to change people’s lives, make an improvement and hopefully, make their home a safe place. Until we break the chain of domestic violence, too many victims are not safe. Help us raise awareness and funds. In honor of Sue, or maybe someone you know and care for, let’s do “something” to improve lives.

If you’d like to donate extra books, plants or baked goods for the day, please contact Jonna for pick up or drop off times for your donation.
100% of the proceeds of this festival
will be donated to Grace Place or Turningpoint.
Turningpoint has EXCITING NEWS! Turningpoint for Victims of Sexual and Domestic Violence
has been selected by the St. Croix Valley Community Foundation to participate in the
Partners for the Future Initiative, a $2 million dollar challenge match.
Every dollar Turningpoint raises through Partners for the Future
through November 2009 will be matched dollar for dollar and
invested in Turningpoint's permanent fund at the Foundation.

It's on my calender now so that makes it official. If I have to personally hand her my application when I get out there, that's good by me. ;) And I'm very excited to be participating in an event for such a good cause.

Uhh, comment #3 ;)
