Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.
- Emily Dickinson.
This year’s event was held at the home of Amy Sanchez of KKTrends in South Miami and
fortunately the change in location did not scare shoppers away.
We had over 10 vendors selling
clothes, jewelry, home decor, handbags, aromatherapy products, fine gifts and so much more. Shoppers were thrilled with the variety and quality of the vendors and it showed in sales!!
Even Natalie and Nicole, eighth graders at St. Thomas the Apostle, brought their Bellisima Jewelry, helping make the event an even greater success.
Thanks to all the vendors for their
generous support: KKTrends, Guadalupe Design, Miami Bungalow, LillyBe, Pantic Jewelry, La Luce, MCharms, Fabulux, Olive Branch Decor and Taudry!!
New Playroom at BCH Miami Cancer Center is Ready!
Through the generosity of our donors, Sofia’s Hope was able to donate enough new toys to set up three play areas in the new offices for the BCH Hem/Onc Clinic.
With the help of Laurie Sargent, Child Life Specialist, and Nikki Mejia, Clinic Nurse, we were able to set up quickly so that the kids could begin enjoying the new spaces. Thank you!!!!
