Here are a few photos from the Peru Party Fundraiser event last weekend. Taking photos completely slipped my mind in all the planning and I am honestly quite sad about that. Thankfully, my friend Lashley took a few and here they are! Matt and I have a few more that I’ll post later (our computer crashed along with them!)

The party was a true success complete with about 60 guests, live jazz piano music, beautiful hand made paper decorations, pretty lights inside and out, a table full of food including yummy quesadillas, black beans and rice, sangria, Sierra Nevada, cookies and brownies, and a huge table full of art items for sale. I raised about $700 that night between guest donations at the door and art items sold. It was really quite a lovely night…all that I’d hoped it would be!

A very special thanks to my wonderful party planners: Kristin McClellan, Cristy Zeier and Hilary Jane Hilton!
