Friday August 20th from 6:30 to 8:30 pm  - A NIGHT FOR SERGIY- Dinner and Silent Auctuion -FBC Moore Fellowship Center  
$15 a person / $5 for childcare PER FAMILY!!

Please purchase tickets for your dinner and childcare online thru the link on the right of this post.  If you are taking advantage of the child care I need to know how many kids, names and ages so we can have enough staff and have them in the right locations.  The dinner will be italian themed meaning spaghetti, lasagna, bread, salad, tea and lemonade.  (had to post the kid with the sgetti pic that was too funny!)

We will have a comedian, music and guest speakers!  The silent auction also promises to be full of great items for your bidding pleasure including an Autographed basketball from Blake Griffin, Scentsy, Creative Memories, Close to my heart, Handmade items including cross stich, photography sessions, zumba lessons/parties, haircare and much more!  If you or someone you know has something you would like to donate for the silent auction, please let us know!  We appreciate all the donations!!  This night is going to be a blast!  Hope you can make it!   There are cards at the west desk at FBC Moore with all the info on it if you'd like to pick up a few to hand out to friends and family as an invite/reminder.  We will also be having the drawings for the giveaway tickets purchased for the iPhone 4, YES THE NEW iPhone ~ and a complete Arbonne anti-aging skin care set during the evening as well!


On going fundraiser opportunities are:

Puzzle fundraiser - We have purchased an "Old Glory" 1000 piece photomosaic puzzle for Sergiy.  This is a really neat and personal opportunity to donate towards bringing our son home.  The puzzle is a picture of the American Flag that is made up of many smaller pictures of things that happen here in the US and landmarks.  He longs to come to America so we think this puzzle is perfect for him.  Each piece of the puzzle sells for $10 meaning when we are done with this puzzle we will have raised $10,000!  That is a huge chunk of our costs!   When you purchase a puzzle piece your name or the name of a loved one you choose is written on the back of your piece.  When all the pieces of the puzzle are purchased we will then put the puzzle together making a beautiful photo of our country's flag that stand for freedom and on the reverse side it will have the names of each and everyone of you who donate towards this fundraiser to help bring him home and give him freedom!  It will be given to Sergiy when he comes home and will be in a double sided frame where he can always see and know what the flag stands for and who helped to bring him home.  Priceless!  We currently have 987 pieces available.  This is a great thing for families to do or grandparents to put in honor of their kids/ grandkids. 

Giveaway items - (we can't call them R_ffles! - some Oklahoma law)  anyway.. we are giving away two amazing gifts! 

The latest and greatest iPhone 4 and a complete Arbonne RE9 Advanced Anti Aging skin care set (men or women can use both of these!! )  

Tickets for the giveaway items will be on sale at all the events or can be purchased via the good ole US Mail by sending your request for how many tickets and which item with your donation to

Bryan or Alecia Horner
2008 Ridgewood Dr. 
Moore, OK  73160 

PLEASE DO NOT USE the paypal link - they do not allow r_ffle items to be purchased through paypal.  So, purchase them in person at an event or at church or thru the mail. 

So, there is your update on all things Adoption Fundraiserish.  Yes, I just made that word up! :)   I hope you will be able to attend or participate in them!  We are looking forward to them all and can't wait to bring our son home!  Thank YOU for your help!

I am posting clarification as I have been getting lots of questions about when/how to donate. I hope this update helps!  Thank you EVERYONE for your questions!!
