Sierra Care Annual Fund-raising Dinner & Dance

Sierra Care’s 2nd Annual Fundraising dinner and dance held at the famous Clarion hotel in Dallas, Texas on Saturday, 24th October 2009, was simply one of sophistication and elegance. Most of the top guns in the community assembled under the big tent to pour select wines for Texan wine lovers and to give hope to the hopeless and voice to the voiceless. The event was met with sunny and clear skies all weekend and was well attended.

The Chairman of the Occasion was Dr David Capper, who is one of the finest palliative care doctors in Texas. In his remarks, he admonished all to follow in the footsteps of Sierra Care members in making a difference to humanity. The Guest Speaker, a Sierra Leonean by birth and a medical doctor by profession, Dr Ernest Kamara commended the gathering for taking the first step in providing the much-needed resources to a reliable and committed organization like Sierra Care. “We need to assist people through their recovery. We need to help them feed their children, clothe themselves, seek employment and grow to become more productive in the growth and re-establishment of their country. But, more importantly, we need to show the world, that it will take much more than “a long sleeve, or a short sleeve” to harm the soul of a God-fearing people.” he concluded.

The beautiful and picturesque banquet hall at the Clarion hotel was the perfect setting for a sensory food and wine experience highlighted by delicious food selections prepared by Project Director and Chef, Mrs.Letticia Brown and, of course, award winning Texan wines. The entire evening was a busy one, but it was great chatting about love for humanity and the needy with all who turned out. Just about everyone that attended had a genuine appreciation for the cause of the event and the selflessness of its members.

Guests had something positive to say about the event from “delicious food”, “beautiful place”, “great music”, “one of the best events in the African community I have ever attended”, “smooth operation”, etc. You get the point, friends. For a 2nd annual event, this dinner and dance knocked the cork out of the park. To put it simply, this was a classy event – it showed in the cheerful givers and the eager philanthropists. It showed in the wine swirling and sipping wine enthusiasts that I had the pleasure of interacting with and pouring for during the evening. To give the guests added value of their time, internationally acclaimed stand-up comedians-Donald Nat-George aka Dandogo and Godfrey Manley-Spain Aka Pa Bongo were reunited to charm the occasion. Other renditions include Maxina Kroma who sang the U. S. national anthem, Daniel and Amy Jordan both are members of the Scofield Church Choir did a duet on “I can only imagine”.  The Masters of Ceremony were Ben Miller and Ngozi Akolam.

Ticket sales for this event were non-existent to allow well-wishers the opportunity to pour out their heart desires for the amputees. Sierra Care Board and guests members wanted their guests to enjoy their time and wine as they cater to the needs of the amputees. Based on public opinion from happy patrons and sponsors, Sierra Care did a remarkable job in highlighting the needs of the amputees – their stories, hopes and dreams and even the little known secrets. Those who attended this event thoroughly enjoyed every minute and sip of it.
