''Security guard Fred here with a very special request to all of the wonderful Deliver the Dream angels who help us continue to make a difference for families in need.

On November 11th - we will be having our 14th annual Denim & Diamonds gala fundraiser at the Fort Lauderdale Marriott Harbor Beach Resort & Spa. Now, of course I would love for each of you to be able to attend... but I know that many of you will be unable due to prior commitments, etc.

How can you still help us to have a successful fundraiser for our families?

Our silent auction during the gala plays a huge part in our fundraising success. The great staff at DTD reach out every year to supportive businesses with a request that they donate an item for our auction. We are so lucky with the responses we receive. People really are generous!!! Hotel nights, restaurant certificates, wine baskets, housewares, blimp rides... you name it.

Well, as I was snoozing during one of my... ahem... day naps - I had a dream that there are so many people who love Deliver the Dream... who either work for, or own their own companies that could donate a unique auction item for our silent auction. It can be an amazing success!!! The biggest and best auction yet!!!

So, as you read this - think about what you could do to help us raise as much money as possible for this year's Denim & Diamonds silent auction!!!

With gratitude and a lick,

Security Guard Fred
P.S., Give the office a call and the fine staff will take it from there!!!''

With the gala comes our famous Wheels of Hope ''Party Wagon'' raffle.
Enter to win the Radio Flyer wagon filled with all of these goodies!

We would like to recognize Zavia King as our Volunteer of the Month. Zavia went on his first retreat this past month for families who have a child with epilepsy. He did an amazing job as a family pal and worked very hard to make sure his family was relaxed and well taken care of the entire weekend. The kids on the retreat loved him and he was such a pleasure to work with! Thank you, Zavia, for joining us and we hope to see you on many more retreats!

The Hernandez family from Wesley Chapel (Greshka, Enrique, Jose, Lanessa, Ginelys, Enrique Jr.) attended the recent retreat for families who a child with epilepsy. ''Keep up the good work.
