I am calling on our extended community to rally together to help one of our favorite people. While this event is being planned, Bernadette is in the middle of moving her awesome shop, and while that is an exciting new adventure, there are also some very challenging details that must she is having to deal with. While there is no doubt that Mama B will handle everything with her usual grace and positivity, she could really use the support of the community as she deals with a stressful and expensive unforeseen circumstance. Unfortunately that obstacle is presenting a financial strain through no fault of her own. (No details being posted for privacy, and I am asking that no one shares those details on this event post). We have an amazing opportunity to be of help...Big help...HUGE HELP... to someone who has helped all of us in one way or another.
