THANK YOU to all those who worked on the ‘Help Hope Live/’A Taste of Provence’ Fundraiser!

• Thank you to Jeanne Ketcham, my coordinator at Help Hope Live for all her patience and advice in pulling together this first Help Hope Live Fundraiser and designing the flyer.

• Thank you to friends & neighbor Noellie Biddle and Raj Nair. Noellie for volunteering to make French food as the centerpiece of our first official ‘Help Hope Live’ fundraiser. Noellie’s generosity is one of two forces which got us moving on fundraising. The other impetus came Raj, who ‘out of the blue’ pulled together a very successful fundraiser.

• Thank you to my dear, generous friend Pam Curtis, for volunteering to move future fundraising efforts forward. And for all her help with outreach, mailing lists, and advice on this event. I had bitten off more than I could chew. I am so relieved and deeply appreciative!

• Thank you to my dear sister Caroline, who has worked tirelessly on the garden in preparation for the event. Our backyard has been greatly enriched by her efforts and gives me great joy every day.

Special thanks to the donors of raffle prizes –
• The Norbu Family/Tibetan Decorative Pillow Covers
• Joan Slater/Garden Design
• Nathalie Biddle and the Seaport Hotel/A Friday or Saturday Night Room

Many thanks to Elysia Chandler, Kalsang Norbu & Lucy Rothenberg for help documenting and carrying out the raffle.

• Thank you to family and friends, neighbors and acquaintances, for your good company and support. I am profoundly grateful. Judy
