Giving Back, Saving Children is always a Good Idea

For all my fellow Gainesville residents, I want to encourage you to take part in the local Stop! Children's Cancer fantasy event (www.stopchildrenscancer.org/) tonight at the O'Connell Center.  I have been honored to be a part of this organization and it's efforts to raise money to combat Children's cancer for the last 15 years.  They are doing great things with the money they raise and I am proud to be a part of this effort.  For the last three years, Sarah Cain Design has been asked to design the featured silent auction area, where we display high valued ($1500+) items being auctioned.  Here are a few preview pictures of our display area.  We hope that you like what you see and encourage you to come and bid on these fantastic items including a football signed by all three UF Heisman winners, A Sister Hazel VIP package which includes a private dining experience with Ken & Andrew, a Haile Plantation Golf package, and many fabulous jewelry items.
