With everyone's help, we were able to raise $1,381.25 for PanCan.

Here are a few pictures from the event. It will make you wish you were there or if you attended it makes you look forward to next year!

A shot of some of the attendees eating and enjoying the band.
The GrayHounds did a great job. The guitars were backed up by two keyboards and the drummer. What a great sound!

I have to thank all of the volunteers and of course, put this picture in. A teenager doing dishes - Thank you to Jacob McWhorter for all of your help.

Calvin and Nanette Gibson serving up the incredible barbeque. They kicked me out because I serve like an army mess sargent, with the emphasis on mess. I would not have survived the evening without the help of my family. Here is my husband, Dennis, and my daughter, Darcy, turning in bid sheets with me to volunteer cashier, Trish C. Oooh and look at the table of goodies the Blosser's brought to sell. Cindy, Trish and Kim all look pretty intense in their bidding!
Finally, some random shots with no comment from me.

Robert Marin photograph

A photograph by Robert Marin is one of the items up for bid Saturday. Taking a photo of a photo doesn't really do it justice, so, in short, the photograph is a small town still life of a vintage bicycle leaning against a store front window. It has been matted and framed, with glass, and measures 19" x 23". Please come to the dinner, however, to take a decent look at it.

Robert Marin is a local photographer. This spring he and his wife Nancy were featured artists at Riverside Perk in downtown Wichita. For the last few years, Robert has also donated photographs to Zoobilee's silent auction. To view more photographs by Robert and Nancy Marin, please visit their Flickr account.

This is one of Cass Carson's Yo2 (Yarn Over Twice) bags. She gives old wool sweaters new life as spacious felted bags, complete with internal and external pockets galore and even a key ring.

Kim Pepper piece

Kim Pepper is a local pottery artist. About two years ago her mother passed away from pancreatic cancer, so donating a piece of her work is especially important to her. The vase is hand-thrown and hand-carved, glazed in a Sagebrush Courtyard color. To see more of Kim's pottery, visit her blog.


What a doll!


Local fiber artist Diane Cooper writes about her doll:

Well this one…i can only say made herself…lol…everything i envisioned her to be didn’t work….
Like her top started out to be an apron, i wanted to put a bandanna on her and made it three times and it never did come out the right size....
so when people ask how i make these dolls i just giggle and tell them, i just let them tell me who they want to be…

i named her learning grace because once again i realize that the gift of these dolls come from something bigger than me.....

this little jewel was made from:
100% cotton threads

Handmade in NumenaStudios by artist Diane Cooper
