Everyone loves a Taco! by Brad

The Larkins family received $100 in our envelope. Chris leans toward me and
said (with a gulp), "oh my, how do we raise $900 or more dollars in two
weeks". "Hey, no problem. Let's put ourselves in God's hands - pray about
it - and do some good old fashion brain storming." As a family, we came up
with the idea to hold a Fiesta and Fellowship Night at Baja Fresh in Costa Mesa
Benefiting Share Our Selves to help those in need in Orange County.

Our son Jake has met with Baja Fresh to set the event up. I worked with
Karen Harrington at SOS to get the authorizing letters for the event.
Chris, Molly and Lily will be leading the marketing of the event starting
with signs at the Crossing this weekend and an email blast to friends and
family, The Crossing , BSA troop 90, and SOS.

We selected SOS because we have been involved with this organization for
years. We especially like the Adopt A Family event which provides Christmas
gifts and dinner to struggling Orange County children and their families.
We have known the founder - Jean Forbath - and her family for years. I am
a very close friend with her son and have been along on many an SOS
adventures thought the years.

Will Fiesta and Fellowship Night at Baja Fresh in Costa Mesa be a success?
Who knows? With a lot of prayer, we may exceed our goal of multiplying
The Crossing's $100 blessing to support Share Our Selves! Hey, only $6000
in Tacos... and everyone loves a taco.

If you can join us, Baja Fresh will donate 15% of all food sold between 4:30 pm and 8:30 pm to
SOS on Friday October 3 from 4:30 to 8:30 pm.
It is important that all participants tell the Baja Fresh people that they are
there to benefit SOS.
