Candlelight Serenade Acoustic Festival


I have never worked on anything so hard in my entire life. I spent 6 months of my life organizing, executing, and raising the money to put on this concert for Child Rescue. It was overwhelming, exhausting, and a huge learning experience for me. I am so glad that it is over and that I get to be with my little boys more (even though I was working out of the house). The concert was not the financial success we had hoped for but we were able to raise funds for local law enforement and vicitm services, but there was a huge amount of awareness that took place and people's were moved and are now apart of this anti-trafficking movement. I was humbled by all the help and support we received by generous sponsors, media, and volunteers. My dear friends and family that helped with this massive undertaking (you know who you are)..... you are my heart. I love you all. Please visit http://www.childrescue.org/ for more details about the cause and http://www.candlelightserenade.com/ for more info about the concert.




The Sweet Tooth Fairy was our Title sponsor. My dear friends own this company. Best cupcakes- but their cake bites are to DIE FOR! http://www.thesweettoothfairy.com/

Our Sea of Candles moment was the most emotional part. Each candle represented a victim.





Candlelight Serenade


Our sea of candles moment was epic. All 4,000+ people had a tea light Candle and we sang the Child Rescue theme song "Light in the Dark" in a tribute to children who are bought and sold as sex slaves in the United States. Child Prostitution and child pornography are human trafficking crimes and are horrific human rights issues. We can all help combat it.
