First of all a huge “Thank You” to the Great Escape Lounge for making us the beneficiaries to their golf tournament. They raised 1400 dollars for our cause and also sold our Love House Kids Sponsor bracelets to everybody . It is just amazing, the patrons, the staff they are all into our kids and we are treated like family. They have been there when we need them the most and Carole and Andy continue to do just that. If you want to visit a true neighborhood bar in Phoenix drop in and see them at 4228 E Indian School and tell them thanks for helping our kids.

Our annual fund raiser is coming up September 15th 4 PM- 10PM at the Moose Lodge at
95th Aveand Peoria . The Moose lodge held this event for us last year too and what a job they did. Don and Denise Green with all the staff are just there for the kids. We have our “Tribute to Tom Petty Band” performing again this year-they are awesome! Scott who owns Blackwell Business Services ( tops in copier and computer services) and Eric owner of Strictly Business ( a computer and computer networking garu) not only do they perform for our event but they sell Love House Kids Sponsor bracelets all year through their business and their other shows. “Into Wishin” will be there again this year and they too never say no to us. Joyce Guyett also organizes the whole entertainment venue for our event , is an awesome Realtor and on the board for the Love House Kids Program. We have an added act this year. Jeremy Scott – comedian has given us a Yes thanks to Danny O Donnell from O Donnell Appraisals. Danny has made us a beneficiary for his Christmas benefit and still gives us Jeremy. Isn’t it amazing how people that give just keep giving? We are entering a rough time right now since most of our network of supporters is involved in the Real Estate industry and that market has not been kind, however we are trying to reach out to other businesses to get support. Any ideas any of you have or if you can contribute, it would be most welcomed. As tough as the industry has been in this past year Jeff Miklus from Budget Brothers Pest Control is still with us- Jeff ’s group have sold 20 tickets 2 years in a row and he is aiming for that again. The title company that has picked up the cost of the meat in the past just can’t see their way clear to do it this year. Kevin Host from Countrywide Home loans and Gary Kirkpatrick from Global Electronics Inc have picked up the cost of the meat for the event and once more 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty have picked up the cost of the sides. That means all the money from the tickets goes directly to the kids program which is 100% to the kids. The tickets are 25.00 and for that you get a steak/chicken meal, live entertainment, silent auction, raffle prizes and the opportunity to do something great for abused neglected kids. If you can’t attend but would like to help you can donate thru our web site at
http://www.lovehousekidsprogram.org/ or call me at 602 971 3331. Now the trick is to get the tickets sold. Our fund raiser proceeds need to cover our Therapy program that has a cost of $35,000, school supplies for 400 kids, clothing for 200 kids, sponsorship for special needs and projects in 5 group homes, a shelter for moms with kids, 2 outreaches for the very poor kids and Christmas for 400 kids. These lists are without the emergency calls that we have never had to say “No” to and are in no mood to start now. One ticket, one dollar- when we start there, we can make it- we don’t have to have huge commitments but we do promise that we will be responsible with that one dollar you give and it is appreciated. We need your help to make this year’s fund raiser a success.
