Laila Rose Foundation celebrated its 9th Annual Spring Festival one week ago. It was a harmonious day of joyful fellowship. We were blessed to see old friends, and make new ones! There's never enough time to visit for as long as we would like.
We have grown significantly since our first Fundraiser, 9 years ago, and so have our contributions for Laila Rose Foundation.
I feel honored to work along side the board, and volunteers of this wonderful Foundation. We have a positive impact on so many families. My greatest hope is that we continue to grow, touching as many lives as possible in a positive way.
It is quite impossible to properly and personally thank each of the volunteers who worked tirelessly with dedication to prepare for the event. The beautification of Lakota starts months before, as well as the marketing and planning for each individual station. Laila Rose Foundation has no paid employees. Every single worker before and after the event is a volunteer. The Band members all volunteer their time and incredible talent. The food is all donated and prepared by volunteers that are experienced and love cooking, barbecuing, and presenting. How about the volunteers at the Bar and the Hot Dog station? They work so hard and still have a smile to welcome you. The MC and Chair of the event are also volunteers that work diligently to make the day flow smoothly for everyone's enjoyment. Words for the Auction Chair and staff, as well as for Rosie Raffle, Kids Wheel, selling Raffle tickets and Bull Bingo are filled with deep appreciation. These folks work all year to collect items that will appeal to our guest and bring excitement for bidding. Who can forget the Sheep Races that bring such enthusiasm for the thrill to win! You are greeted at Parking and follow the signs to Registration to receive whatever information you may need. Throughout the day and at the end, you are communicating with Finance. These volunteers have a huge responsibility and do a superb job of documentation.
To each of our guests, we hope you had an awesome day and will return next year with enthusiasm. Please tell your friends about your day. Every guest was more than generous and we thank you from our hearts. Donors like you make an immediate impact and difference in the lives of our Families in need.
With our warmest regards,
The Engh Family
