Scrappin' for Sam

My dear friend Carolyn tragically lost her 5 year old twin son Sam in an auto accident this past May. He went to the movies with his older sister Jessie and her boyfriend Jarrod (both were to be seniors this fall). They were on their way home around 8pm and swerved to miss a truck that was heading right for them. When the driver of the truck realized he was in the wrong lane he swerved back into his lane and the two vehicles collided with the impact being on the passenger side of both vehicles. Jessie's boyfriend was killed at the scene. Sam was life watched to the hospital where he later died of severe head trauma. Jessie survived with some broken bones and of coarse the emotional scars. I am helping to put on crop called Scrappin' For Sam in which all proceeds will benefit this family. The event is Saturday August 25th from 9am to 5pm. Admission is $25 and this includes a light breakfast, lunch and snacks. There are a ton of door prizes, silent auction and make and takes. If you are interested in attending let me know.
Thanks for stoppin' in!
