Brianne Murphy needs your support in raising money for the Larkin Center Sweetheart Auction on Feb. 5, 2011!

As we round the end of 2010, I'm sending out a message that I hope will inspire you to think about what your passion and purpose is, and to take the next step in making it a reality. My hope is to raise money to help fund The Larkin Center for abused and neglected children who have behavioral and emotional challenges resulting from such abuse. Can you help out with a pledge of $5, $10, or $20 to sponsor me for this fund-raising event? Remember, your donation is tax deductible.

My passion is to help people find hope, whether they are innocent victims of another person’s selfish choices, grieving the loss of a loved one through death or divorce, or simply fallen on hard times by default. Everyone deserves a chance at finding hope

When you are a child, you think everyone lives the same “normal” life that you do. Then you become aware that things are very different for some of your friends, and not so great after all. This is where my purpose comes into play.

I am participating in the 15th Annual Sweetheart Auction for The Larkin Center in Elgin. This facility is a place where children reside who have been removed from their home due to emotional, physical, sexual abuse or neglect. There is also an adult program for those diagnosed with chronic mental illness or severe emotional disturbances.

The Sweetheart Auction is a fund-raising event where 8 bachelors and 8 bachelorettes are auctioned with a date package from top local restaurants and entertainment venues to the highest bidder. If you are single, can I interest you in purchasing a ticket for $30 to attend this fun filled event? With an expected crowd of more than 300, I am confident that you can find an interesting person to mingle with at some point during the event. You never know what can happen during the course of the evening!!

My opportunity this year is to show my support for a great cause to a Center that has been the “home” for 114 years to countless individuals. I can’t think of a better way to invest my time.

Together we make a difference in the life of a child or adult to help these individuals who deserve a second chance. Can you sponsor me with a small monetary donation to help support The Larkin Center’s Sweetheart Auction?

Thank you for your support,

Brianne Murphy
