Michele Laughman Day

Easton Elementary School lost a very special teacher this year when Michele Laughman passed away from breast cancer. October 18, 2009, will mark the first Michele Laughman Day, with a 5K walk/run, a Lollipop Loop Fun Run for the kids, and lots of activities after the run. Everything from face painting to games, crafts to bake sales will take place. Michele was a joyous, fun-loving woman, and her spirit will absolutely be at this event.

There will also be a raffle and a silent auction with all proceeds to benefit the Michele Laughman Foundation. I've donated several pieces of jewelry, including this special bracelet, which will be in the silent auction. (Click for a larger view).
It's full of sterling silver beads, each accented with pink Swarovski crystals, and guardian angels and awareness ribbons are nestled among the silver beads. A beautiful floral toggle clasp finishes this lush bracelet (do you see the butterfly)?

If you're interested in placing a bid but won't be able to attend, please contact me and I will put you in touch with the committee chair.

The 5K run will start at 7:30am at Idlewild Park in Easton, MD, with the Lollipop Loop starting at 9am. The remaining festivities will begin at 11am at the Easton Volunteer Fire Department.

Thanks for your support!
