Oh, I still do, of course, but sometimes I forget. Because for the past year I've been working with a group of awesome individuals towards this event to raise funds to expand the Project SEARCH program across West Michigan.
What IS Project SEARCH? Well, it's a school-to-work program that takes high school seniors with physical or cognitive disabilities and places them into an actual work situation over the course of the school year, with the goal of finding gainful employment upon graduation.
The Auction to Benefit Project SEARCH will take place this coming Thursday, November 4th at Noto's Italian World Dining in Grand Rapids. A chance to do some early Christmas shopping (from a choice of incredible items!) while at the same time, supporting a great cause. Not to mention sampling a heavy course of some of Noto's most delectable hors d'oeuvres and desserts!
(Updated: This post was from last year! And this year's auction to be held again at Noto's on Thursday, November 10th promises to be even better... with a "Strolling Dinner" added, along with some even more incredibly awesome items to bid on! Scroll down for the link to our current FaceBook page for a preview.)
As for my part.... (besides hauling them up to our super secure storage room and eeeing and oohing over every single wonderful donation that came in)...
Save The Date
ThankYou Cards for donors
300 programs in a box ready to go...
Anyway, it's been tons of fun living my dream of being a graphic designer... while still earning a weekly paycheck!
Please contact me if you're interested in attending. It's gonna be a SUPER fun night! And by the way, the auction items are WAY cooler than my artwork. *g*
