At the end of October, I held my 1st Annual Hot Dog Sale Fundraiser at First United Methodist Church in Dallas, North Carolina. I had 300 hot dogs and we sold 80 hot dogs. As we progressed throughout the evening, we had several members from both churches that I deal with coming in and supporting my fundraising efforts. Along with the 80 hot dogs that were sold and a very beautiful prayer quilt given to me, we raised $900. This was a great start for the only fundraiser that I was able to have this year.
Next year, I am hoping for another year with at least two (2) fundraisers. Thanks, everyone, for all the help and love that you bring when we have these fundraisers. If you have an idea for one of my fundraisers in 2017, please don't hesitate to give me a call or email me.
God bless you all!

A couple of weeks ago, my pastor and friend, Rev. Kim Higgins, took on my next fundraiser for me. She came up with a chili cook-off fundraiser with donations from Morgan's shoes, Giorgio's in Cramerton, and several other donations from various places. We had a great turnout and I am blessed to have such a great person in my life. She is the best.
We raised about $850. That was great this will bring my total up to right under $10,000. I love you guys. Everyone who has touched my life in any way possible has been a true blessing. Thank you and God bless you all.

I gotta call the dentist to see about getting some teeth. But first, I gotta find the number. Hopefully, it will be soon.

Well, I have had all of my teeth pulled. But now I have to worry about if a inbedded tooth will have to be taken out. It feels like it is coming through. In that case, it will be even longer for me...
