I've been busily building the website for the Mitch Carlson Benefit. If you haven't been to the website yet, please visit, especially if you are one of those lovely individuals who donated an auction item. Let me know if there's anything you would like added to the description there!
And if you live in the Twin Cities area, be sure to visit the site to check out the raffle and auction items as they appear over the next few days - and then come to the Benefit. There will be lots of fun things to do, to eat and drink, to sing, and to buy. Something for everyone!
It is amazing and inspiring to see how many wonderful donations we've received; people are incredibly generous and kind, much more so that we tend to give them credit for. Blanche Dubois was right to depend on the kindness of strangers - but I would argue that once one does so, they can no longer be counted as strangers, but as friends. We are, indeed, all connected!
