2008 CHI Reunion Brings Music, Dancers and a Chance to Connect with the Adoption Community

With the 2008 Children's Hope Reunion less than a month away, it's time to look at what is in store for our families!

In the last few years, the night prior to the reunion has been a celebration all in itself. A chance to unwind from your travels and begin connecting with other families created through adoption, this year, meets a chance to combat the hunger of Vietnamese orphans.

July 11, 2008 at the St. Louis Marriott West Hotel, 5:30 p.m.

With a meet and greet with Fredbird®, official mascot of the St. Louis Cardinals, a silent auction, visual art entertainment by Cicoff and performances by local contemporary Christian artists, the Travis Lee Band and the Eric Prewitt Band... this will be a night guaranteed to bring fun and relaxation to your family.

Special to the evening:

Usborne Books will be on site selling children's books, with all of their proceeds benefiting the Vietnam Nutrition Program.

And a Chance to Win:
Total Gym XLS, 4 Backstage Passes to the Grand Old Opry, 2 Spa Days with James Mitchell Salons, Guitar Hero, and baskets and gift certificates from Single Red Thread, Cartoon Network, Macy's, Bandanna's and more (like the bear, pictured below)!

Children's Hope Reunion Picnic 2008

July 12, 2008 at the Queeny Park Arena, 10:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.
Featuring music by Kiersten Venezia, entertainment by Chinese dancers, and a catered buffet lunch by Bandanna's

With all the additional entertainment of arts, crafts, and games, still our families most appreciate the opportunity to meet their program directors face to face and reconnect with many of the families in their travel group.

When the Decks attended last year they "had the pleasure of meeting new friends and catching up with 3 of the 15 families we traveled with in China. ...It was wonderful to catch up, re-live our life-changing experiences in China, and see how everyone was adjusting and getting along. Everyone is doing great!" says Chris.

Call your fellow adoptive families and reignite your friendships. Plan to attend the Children's Hope Reunion, this year on July 12.
