[to top of second column in this letter]

We will have live music, food, a red carnation for every lady -- and an evening full of fun and an event such as Logan County has never had before.

The proceeds stay in our county and go to fund the needs of those children who have been placed in foster care.

Last year's event raised enough money to purchase many needed items for infants, toddlers and young children who were placed in foster care. We provided them with clothes, toiletries and even teddy bears to bring them comfort as they went through the unfortunate transition of being displaced from their homes. We even helped a family fix a toddler's teeth.

Please open your hearts and attend this event.
