Here's some pics from our fun night...
|My sweet friend, Shelli, fixed my hair for me - my first up do! ;-)|
|Kwero was held in the renovated Mayo Hotel Crystal Ballroom - such a beautiful place!|
|Flower arrangements were made by Heather's Flowers and Gifts|
|Each table was represented by an orphan living at Calo Me Lare. This is the little girl we actually sponsor. I can't wait to meet Anna when I go to Uganda this summer!|
|Silent Auction - ready to go!|
|This is one of the paintings that was sold during the silent auction. I thought it was so beautiful and my sweet hubby won it for me! I can't wait to hang it in our African-inspired dining room!|
|This is another painting that was up for bid at the silent auction. It was really neat for me to see because I actually took the photograph this pictured was created from on my first trip to Uganda. It's called "Saving Tracy" and you can read her story here.|
|Live auction! So fun and exciting!|

We had a great time celebrating transformed lives and we look forward to doing it all over again next year at Kwero 2013!
