Thailand Fundraiser : Silent Auction and Concert

As many of you know, my husband and I, along with 8 other people are planning a trip to Thailand in May.  We are traveling in hopes of helping organizations that are fighting human trafficking.  Pattaya, Thailand is the international hub for this crime and groups are reaching out to victims and giving them hope.

Our team is hard at work fundraising for this trip, and our latest endeavour was an event last weekend at a fantastic local art gallery here in Amarillo.  The owner was gracious enough to lend not only his building, but also his time and energy and brainstorming to help make the event a success.
