The evening was truly enjoyable, I'm not kidding, it really was. It fun to compete with other attendees for live and silent auction items and it was exciting to hear from our Executive Director as to where the affiliate is headed, now that our current development is underway.
I thought the best part of the event was hearing from Rosa, one of our 56 Habitat homeowners, regarding the life-changing event she and her family went through almost 4 years ago. They went through a dramatic change as they moved from a small, cramped garage to a brand new, beautiful single family home.
But no one in the room captured the audience's attention like Mariana did. Mariana is Rosa's young daughter and she put into words how she felt about the whole experience.
Obviously, Mariana's written words cannot compare to her spoken ones, but her message is one and the same - gratitude, so thank you Mariana, for sharing your thoughts with all of us.
