Beads of Courage Challenge and Fundraiser

I will be participating in the Beads of Courage Bead Challenge this coming weekend in Orange, CA at Coatings by Sandberg. There will be all kinds of beady happenings from glass bead making demos to make-it-take-it bracelets. My fellow Southern California Flame Surfers are also hosting a gift shop and a raffle! All of this is to benefit the new Beads of Courage programs in Southern California hospitals: Children's Hospital of Orange, Rady Children's Hospital and City of Hope National Medical Center.

To learn more about Beads of Courage and the children it helps, watch this video!

I will be at the bracelet making table with my good friend Bindy Lambell from 10 - 12 and will demo bead making from 12 - 2. My friend Donna Conklin (among others!) will also be on demo duty from 10 - 12.

This is a great chance to see some talented bead makers in action. Heather Trimlett will be demoing from 10-12 and Barbara Birbeck (her fabulous shells are amazing!) will be demoing from 2-4.  There are going to be six torch set-ups with demos going all the time!

The volunteers will be bringing a selection of their work to sell with proceeds going to the charity! It's a great cause and a fun day!
