On Wednesday, June 3, 2009, there will be a fundraiser for a three year old child orphan with Down Syndrome currently living in Eastern Europe. A Lake County family is trying to adopt Adam since in Eastern Europe, if he is not adopted before he turns four, he will be permanently placed in a mental institution.
Chris Marlow, a teacher of Pre-K children with disabilities at UCP is hosting a fundraiser at The Wine Den at 109 East Fourth Avenue in Mount Dora from 6 - 9 PM on Wednesday night. There will be great food created by The Frosty Mug, live music provided by Jerry Williford of Maitland who is terrific ( I have a CD of his music in my car that is really fun!) and other local musicians. Please come and support this worthwhile cause.
For more information about orphans with Down Syndrome in Eastern Europe, see the website of Reece's Rainbow, the adoption agency for this child and others. For more information on Adam, his picture is listed in Armenia, and the family information is listed about the families needing support.
