A Nashville Dinner Party

CaseyRachelHigh school students Rachel Blue and Casey Flow were back at home in Nashville, but they couldn’t stop thinking about the kids they had met in Ghana last summer. Rachel and Casey had been on a small team of students lead by Jamie and Lauren Burton who visited the Touch A Life Care Center, and even before they left Ghana these determined young women knew wanted to keep helping once they were home.

Jamie and Lauren’s son Micah was adopted from Ghana, so Rachel and Casey talked to the Burtons about helping to fund something at the Care Center in honor of Micah. After brainstorming with the Touch A Life team and hearing about the need for a fence around the Care Center property, Casey and Rachel decided to come up with a creative way to help.

DinnerPartyThe fundraiser they chose was a dinner party! Casey said that, “on the night of the fundraiser, we had about 40 people show up. We served dinner and then The Burtons spoke briefly about their connection with Touch A Life and how they got Micah. Then Rachel and I shared our story and our vision of what the money would go towards. It was such a beautiful night.” Altogether, the event raised $15,000 for the Touch A Life fence project!
