Shannon Bauman brought to reality the number of children caught up in human trafficking, in particular, Asia. She shared her experiences on trips there and getting involved in helping through an organization called Destiny Rescue.

During intermission, Sydney Fleming did a wonderful job of entertaining playing her guitar and singing. Everyone mingled having coffee and dessert.

As the evening came to an end, draws were made for door prizes, 50/50, Crocus auction.

The Swan River Valley Health Auxiliary would like to thank everyone for coming out to support this very worthwhile fundraiser. It would be fun to make this an annual event. All the money raised stays in the valley to buy much needed equipment for our own hospital. And new members are always welcome to join.
