In April, Healing Odyssey hosted its third annual fundraiser called Wine, Women & Song (and Men, Too). Held at lovely Freedom Village in Lake Forest, the event included a repertoire of music put together by classical pianist and Healing Odyssey grad, Joji Angeline. Together with her combo, the audience was treated to musical numbers that ranged from pop to opera. It was moving and exhilarating! In addition to the wonderful entertainment, the participants were provided with a variety of top-flight wines, donated by HO grads and friends, and a delicious buffet, catered by HO grad, Yvonne Lovato. The afternoon of fun wrapped up with an auction for a number of valuable gift baskets, with the top prize being five tickets to Disneyland.
It was an amazing event, building on the previous two years, and sure to mean a 2020 version next year. Thanks to Joji for donating her time and talents, and assembling a team of musicians who blessed us with their presence. Thanks to Yvonne, Debbie Belsher, our event leader, and all the grads and friends who contributed time, money and energy to produce a beautiful success. Even better, more than $10,000 was collected to benefit Healing Odyssey!
