I wholly subscribe to the above proverb – It Takes a Village to Raise a Child. In this case, it is about the multiple Children at Youth at Risk that benefited from the gala event Real Life Real Design.

The great SUCCESS of the Real Life Real Design gala designer showcase last week was totally dependent upon the generiousity of the vendors, suppliers and laborers whom donated their products and time for the greater good. I could not have done this alone.

I created a GRATITUDE BOARD for the event and pinned everyone that gave to the event onto the board for all to see. Here are the names and links to those that are on Team Lee. If you ever are in need of any of these things, I highly recommend going to these sources first.
