AHOP fundraiser for Mina
We are planning a wine and cheese fundraiser in September. When Pete and I chose AHOPE as one of the organizations we would like to support, they got me in touch with a woman named Julie. Julie just returned a couple months ago from ET with a beautiful little girl; however she had lost her first daughter two days before travelling to get her! Her first daughter, Mina, passed away from an asthma attack right before she was able to travel and get her. AHOPE realized that we lived near one another, so I was able to attend Julie's event in Washington DC and meet her gorgeous little one!! Aren't those eyes just amazing. I think Julie was looking to raise $100,000 that night.......just incredible the amount of children with HIV that could support and help. I hope our event in September raises even a small percentage of that!
