A WEEK OF FUNDRAISING
The first week in February was a busy and blessed week for Sonshine Hacienda, and served as a reminder how important our connections are in the San Felipe community.
On February 7, the San Felipe Scorpion Club held their annual Fun Day. The Scorpions are a group of individuals with 4-wheel drive vehicles who provide rescue service in the desert. Fun Day is a break from the serious nature of the group, an opportunity to drive through an obstacle course, play bingo, bid on auction items, and enjoy a lunch of fully-loaded baked potatoes. The weather was perfect for this outdoor event, 120-plus people came out to enjoy the fun, and proceeds benefited Sonshine Hacienda.
While Scorpion Fun Day was taking place, another group was busy setting up the annual yard sale to benefit Sonshine Hacienda. The yard sale was held on February 9-10 at the home of John and Bonnie Gilbert and 99+1 Ministries. Over 40 volunteers came out to help organizers Dwayne and Darlene Tucker, and even more contributed items to be sold. Year after year this continues to be one of the largest fundraisers for Sonshine Hacienda.
To wrap up the week, El Padrino, a local pizzeria and Italian restaurant, hosted an afternoon of music, prizes, and great food on Saturday, February 11, sharing their proceeds with Sonshine Hacienda. We are so grateful for the love that Padrino has for Sonshine Hacienda.
We can’t imagine a more loving and supportive community than San Felipe. The week was like one big hug of community support for the children!
