Right is mentor Laura Mendosa and a “rookie”. Most of the mentoring for my “rookie” has been via email, since she is in Washington and I’m in North Carolina.
The proceeds from the event will benefit Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital in Tacoma, but the children will also benefit in another way. People coming to the event or to the Expo in general are bringing pillowcases they have made for the hospital. Barbara Littrell from Mary Bridge says, “These pillowcases mean the world to the kiddos staying here at Mary Bridge. They brighten their rooms and their spirits.” At left is Leanne, who plans to make 100 pillowcases.
Visit the Expo blog for more about the event and the pillowcase project.
