Register Now for An Evening to Remember, 2011 - World Joy


I'm so excited I can barely stand it! The possibility of bringing clean, pure, beautiful drinking water to the villagers in Abrenya is becoming a reality with each new day. Many of you have already taken a leap of faith and registered for our event, not even knowing the schedule of events for convention. I thank you for your trust and support!

I would never purposely plan anything to interfere with the scheduled events for convention. Not knowing what is being planned I need to take a 'leap of faith' and schedule my venue for Friday, July 15th. At the present I have our event scheduled from 6:00 until 9:00 p.m. IF we need to move the event to earlier in the afternnoon, I have the option of doing that as well.

For those of you who attended last year, you know that it truly WAS an Evening to Remember. Not only was the food 'to die for', but the renewing of old acquaintances, and making new friends, and stamping gorgeous projects, and participating in the best swap ever was priceless. BUT this year will be even BETTER, because your participation is truly making a difference in that little village in Ghana. Seats are going quickly, so don't delay. Click on this link to pay for your spot for An Evening to Remember and build the well in Abrenya!.

For those of you who can't attend Convention, you can still participate in the building of the well. We'll accept any donation, large or small, and it's tax deductible! Click on this link to make a donation for the building of the well.

So what's for eats on the menu. Let's see, how about The Traditional Buffet, with all you can eat.

  1. Mixed green salad with condiments and dressing.
  2. Assorted seasonal fruit tray.
  3. Prime Rib with Au Jus
  4. Apricot cranberry glazed chicken
  5. Seasonal vegetables
  6. Parslied new red potatoes
  7. Chocolate macadamia nut moussecake with an Oreo cookie crust.
  8. Hard rolls
  9. Sparkling cranberry juice
Yummm ... my mouth is watering just thinking about the food. It's excellent! You'll love it, I promise.

And yes, we'll have an organized swap that you'll want to sign up for. More details forthcoming. There will also be an incredible item that will be up for 'auction'. I'm not going to tell you just what it is ... but it's something that you'll ALL want, I promise! So, save your pennies for the 'live' auction item.

And, last but not least, don't forget the incredible stamping projects donated by the one and only, Dawn Rapsas! Dawn is the creator of UStamp with Dawn and Friends. This is an amazing website which gives you access to incredible stamping projects with tutorials and step by step instructions with pictures. This new round of projects will focus on the Big Shot. Dawn has a line up of incredible designers, including the one and only, Jaron Winder, and THE Designer of our Exclusive Stampin' Up! Bigz XL Die the O Christmas Tree Pop-Up and the Pop-Up Three Tier Cake, Karen Burniston. Oh, and did I mention ... I'm a Guest Designer on UStamp too and I've got some great projects that I've already started working on. You won't want to miss out. Please click on this link to register for UStamp with Dawn.

That's about it for now. Don't delay. Last year's An Evening to Remember sold out quickly!

Hey Linda! It's Eleonor from Vancouver, B.C. It's been awhile since we last saw each other, but I do read your blog and I do miss you! If you read my blog, you'll see that I've nominated you for an blog award. Check it out at http://stampersstudio.typepad.com/stampers_studio/
I hope you don't mind. I had no way of reaching you other than to leave a comment. Hope you are well!

I know that you just posted this info, but I went to make a donation for the well and there is nothing to "click" on to do it. I will check back later on but just wanted to let you know.

Thank, Karen for making me aware of the missing donation information on the Event Brite side. It's now fixed and anyone who can't attend An Evening to Remember can certainly participate in the building of the well. With your help we can make this happen! Thanks bunches. Loves and Hugs -- Linda
