On November 4, I was invited to a Wishing Star Foundation benefit breakfast where I MC'd for the morning. They are an amazing organization! They are wish makers in real life form!! Wishing Star's mission statement is to provide kids with hope through uplifting and rejuvenating experiences refocusing on the joys of life, to provide lasting support and memories for wish families, to treat families and associates with dignity and protect their privacy, and to inspire greater community participation in fulfilling Wishing Star's Mission. They are able to grant children wishes that are diagnosed with terminal or medical issues from ages 3 to 21. Pictured with Mandy Wood from ICON Credit Union (a sponsor the the organization) and Tracy Shaw (the director for the local Wishing Star) What a phenomenal organization!
The Veteran's Day Parade was a huge success on November 7! I enjoyed riding in a Corvette provided by the local corvette club! The driving was extremely kind and gracious. A HUGE "thank you!!!" to our Vet's who have served past and present, if it wasn't for them, freedom wouldn't be free for us. I was honored to be a part of the parade and feel blessed that there are those who place their lives above mine so I can be free. Picture is from the Idaho Statesman.
I was asked to participate with Protect Idaho Kids for the Idaho Steelheads game on Nov. 12 and 13. At Protect Idaho Kids they raise awareness on the rescourses that are already here and available for the state of Idaho such as the 211 line (pick up any phone, dial 211, and get any answers your looking for in terms of parenting and most other issues with families including counseling services, information on where to go and even class schedules for those who seek to improve). We were able to help spread the message to everyone about helping keep our kids safe here in Idaho and I got to drop the first puck as well as ride on the Zamboni! What an amazing couple of evenings! Also picutred is Miss Outstanding Teen Western Idaho, 2010, Ashley Stultz. She's a doll!
