A Summer Evening . . .

 
 
Jack and I attended an event last night
which was held on the grounds of 
Hampton Green Farms
 
This farm is located in
Fruitport Michigan
and there is another in
Wellington, Florida
 
web access to the farms can be found here
 


This fundraiser dinner was for the
Father Jack Foundation
 
The mission statement;
"to respond quickly, with dignity and respect,
to those in our community with unmet needs."
 
Father Jack was known as the Peace Priest
in the days when I first began working at the hospital.
 
I wish I had kept track of the many people he helped
provide food, clothing, heat, housing
during those years.

 I would phone him for his help
and there was never a hesitation.
He found a way.
 
 
Father Jack


the grounds were outstanding
 



 
 

 
music, great food, 50/50 drawing, laughter
a festive evening
 
 
 
Hampton Green Farms
provided their farm
tent, music, food
for this fundraiser

several sponsors were also mentioned
 
 
the stables and show grounds were exceptional
 

 equine beauty

The grounds, and the building are stunning, what a gorgeous sunset.

And a great fundraiser, sounds like it was so much fun.

There are such good people in the world, it makes the balance more then tip that way.
