'Thank You' To Supporters of Hogar Del Nino - The Hogar del Nino Food and Wine Pairing Fundraiser was a big success! Thanks to the excellent 5-course dinner prepared by Sergio of La Casita, 5 wines presented by Mac of La Bodega and elegantly hosted by Jessica and Matt of Villa Santa Cruz, the 68 guests enjoyed a special evening. The event was made possible through the generosity of the auction item donors, the 50/50 cash raffle participants and the winner who gifted her winnings to the Hogar!, the gracious and generous donations of numerous community sponsors, and over 20 volunteers. Amazing things were accomplished as we all worked together. Joel and Alicia Hernandez are very grateful for the warm community support. Lisa Welsch, Nancy Serfas and Nancy Naigle sincerely thank all who were involved, and we know your gifts will make positive significant changes to the lives of the children of Hogar del Nino. We are indeed a generous and loving community! - Nancy Naigle, nnaigle [ -at- ] att.net, 612-178-0040

Abandoned Puppy In Need Of Nursing Dog - I'm less than 2 weeks old (eyes still closed). I got caught between 2 fences and my human rescuers cut me loose.
