Compassion Tour is good to go

By
From page A6 | June 19, 2014 |

With an abundance of thanks and gratitude, we would like to acknowledge the kind contributions and donations that made the recent “Dinner for Compassion Tour” a success.

Mary Philip and her volunteer crew cooked up yet another wonderful Indian meal for a good community cause. We thank Robb Davis for emceeing a lively program. Blues musician Packard Slim, Kanz al-Sahara Belly Dance and Fusion Troupe, and a local hula dancers group throughly entertained the crowd. Teen henna artists Jenna Dyer and Amanda Kim created beautiful tattoos. Thanks to all of you!

We appreciated the use of the Fellowship Hall at Davis Community Church and all the assistance provided by the staff. What a great kitchen you have!

These local establishments facilitated the sale of tickets, which helped us reach more people: Ali Baba’s Restaurant, Bohéme Hip Used Clothing, Farmer’s Kitchen Cafe, Newsbeat, Style Lounge Hair Salon and Vini Wine Bar.

Here are the folks who contributed silent auction and raffle items. As Robb said, these items were given with love and reflected what the compassion tour is all about:

Andrew Waterhouse’s wine tasting; Jeff Andrew’s paintings; Eatwell Farm’s CSA box subscription and homemade items; Lyle Najita’s massage and acupuncture sessions; Amanda Lee’s massage session; the Davis Acupuncture Clinic’s acupuncture session; Dancing Dog Farm’s lovely “Bee Compassionate” basket; Frances Andrew’s gift of gardening; the Fitness Garage’s exercise punchcards; Jim and Peter Frame’s River Cats tickets; Senders Wine’s wine; Karin Strong’s tennis lessons and Lloyd Johnson’s block prints.

Also, Ben Tuasen’s photographs; Kristin Stoneking’s items from Guatemala; Anna Hintz’s artful, drought-tolerant garden flower; Francisco Dominguez’s photograph; Elaine Barrett’s pies; Margaret Waterhouse’s french macaroons; Avon’s gift basket; Dave Webb’s note cards; The Avid Reader’s books; Let Them Eat Cake’s cupcakes; and gift cards from Mishka’s, Watermelon Music, Downtown Davis, YoloBerry, Crepeville and Rocknasium.

Through all of your generous contributions, we raised a lot of support for the tour. Thank you.

We also greatly appreciate that The Davis Enterprise is always willing to publish articles and press releases to help spread the word.

A final thanks to all the people who helped and all the people who bought tickets, gave money and/or blessed us with their support. We are deeply grateful.

David Breaux, Carrie Dyer, Jeff and Michelle Andrews, Margaret Waterhouse, Kristin Stoneking and Kari Peterson

on behalf of the Compassion Tour
