Make it & Bake it – benefit for Susan Major

1058 Lacy Road, Skaneateles NY 41a- Benson- Lacy

Date: July 11, 2009
Time: 12:00 PM – 05:00 PM
Benefit Bazaar – artsist one-of-a kind, tag sale, and old fashion bake sale
100% of proceeds go to support Susan Major’s journey to health.
Also the Flip Flop Project is on going and they can be purchased at Bijou Salon, The Community Center, and Skaneateles Jewelers as well as at the Bazaar. This time they read Love, Faith and Hope.

Susan Major always has a smile on her face, with lipstick that typically coordinates with her outfit; but it’s her inner beauty that radiates. Founder of Sacred Mornings for Moms and Our Joyful Journeys, Susan has ignited many women to believe in a better day, nourish their spiritual side and to think about giving back to others. I have witnessed firsthand Susan’s ability to sow seeds of hope for others. Many women have stopped me with tears in their eyes to tell me how Susan has positively impacted their life; now that circle of love that she creates is the ripple in the pond that we all feel.

At age 39, Susan was recently diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer That’s why the community is coming together.
