Time for Tea to Help a Local Family

By  | 

    We have a family in Central who lost their home due to a fire in July. They have a 5 yr old daughter, Aaulora, and new born son, Noah. The first question always is” did they have insurance?” They did but that never covers everything. Allison was put to bed rest for 75% of her pregnancy. Noah was born July 11th and hospitalized July 17th at OLOL with a virus. When he was released the Doctor wanted the home disinfected so the family went to their grandmothers to stay while this was done. Their second night there they received word their home was engulfed in flames. They lost everything on July 22nd

    A Tea Party/benefit is being thrown for Aaulora. The proceeds will be used to furnish her new bedroom and any other needs she has.  Aaulora lost all her clothes, toys, bed etc. in the fire.

When: October 16, 2011 from 1pm to 4pm

Where:12221 Blackwater Rd, Central, La. 70714

Cost: $25 (includes child and 1 chaperone)

Age:  There is no age limit, though suggestion is 3-12

    Each little girl will have their own tea cup and saucer to take home, a wrist corsage, a party favor and they will each get to make their own hair fascinators. They will play a game with one prize per table (6 tables).  Finger foods and beverages will be served. You can follow our progress on Aaulora's FB pg, Aaulora’s Tea Party. https://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Aauloras-Tea-Party/272973562728221.

    This is more than just a fund raiser it will also be a bright spot in a little girl’s life that has been darkened by this tragedy.

    The family is Jason, Allison (Kirby), Aaulora & Noah Kesner.
