2009 Silent Auction was a Success

Our first silent auction fundraiser this past November 14th, 2009 at Tuscany Gardens was a success.  Over 130 guests enjoyed a delicious catered dinner while listening to live marimba performer Kim Summers.   The auction opened at 6:30 pm with a variety of items from around the world that included hand woven Persian rugs, hammocks, beautiful pottery and much more.  We would like to specially thank our event sponsors:  Anne and Pearce Landry, Dr. David R. Williams, Dr. Stephanie Lindsay,  Hamid Asadian, Premier Printing Co. and Thomasville Pediatrics for their generous support.  We also like to thank our donors who provided a variety of beautiful items towards the auction.  We were able to raise over $10,000.00 towards the operating budget of the clinic in Nicaragua. 

The clinic provides urgently needed medical care to the impoverished population of Empalme de Boaco and surroundings.  Most of the clinic patients are women and young children who have very limited access to quality health care.  The clinic is opened 5 days a week and is staffed by a physician and nurse assistant.  All medications and treatments are provided to each patient free of charge.   Thanks to the generosity of private donors the clinic has been able to make a direct difference in the lives of thousands of people since September 2007.   If you would like more information or would like to make a financial gift please contact Susan Baron at laluzministries@ymail.com.
