The Color Purple

Color Purple Event II 

Otober 11th at 7pm, Gary & Sue Gaither will host the second annual El Evento Color Purpura.  (See thecolorpurpleevent.blogspot.com)

It has grown considerably this year form a women's luncheon to a semi-formal dinner for all. Tickets are now $20, representing a first class dinner.

Among the speakers are the lovely Miss Cuenca and the Dr Avarado, Director of SOLCA, the children's cancer hospital.

The four sponsors are providing free promotion from Unsion Television (100 spots), La Famila Radio, El Tiempo newspaper and Arco Language Institute .

They hope to sell all 250 seats and also to obtain donations from friends in the US. Twenty dollars goes a long way here in Ecuador. Tickets are available at Villa San Carlos, Hotel Inca Real, and El Tiempo

All net proceeds go the SOLCA for the benefit of children and their families. Many are so poor that they cannot afford the bus fare to visit their children in the hospital!

Sue has written a special song for suffering children. She will play and sing it during the event. Gary will close with a short devotion.

Hope you all can make it to a wonderful evening celebrating life, and helping those families struggling with children living with cancer.
