The weather was magnificent last Wednesday. It started warm and sunny, in the evening the full moon was so bright and beautiful. It was the perfect backdrop make the fundraiser a memorable one.
The event was a success. Not only were we able to raise money for this worthy cause but some many others also donated many items to the Madonna House to be sold in their Thrift Shop and for future sales. It was lots of fun, great food and many who came that didn’t know much about the Madonna House and all the good things that this organization does for the community. This event opened many doors to many other organizations that will benefit the Madonna House in the future.
There were so many donated items that weren’t sold, L’Estrella and the Madonna House will be holding a garage sale to raise additional money in the near future. There are many beautiful paintings, prints, china, collectibles, furniture, etc.
In addition to the funds raised, L’Estrella Studio in Colts Neck donated to the Madonna House a beautiful one of a kind painting to be hung at her location in Neptune. Becky Blonsky, the founder of the Madonna House was delighted as it so aptly represented what the Madonna House stands for. Their primary mission being to serve infants, children and women by providing supplies 'FREE OF CHARGE". Since 1987 an estimated 7,000 local children a year are aided by the Madonna House.

Our group the "New Jersey Shore IFSG" has been assisting the Madonna House with a Curbside Makeover in beginning November 2007. Since then we have been gathering donations of paint and raising funds for other items that they need to help their organization run more smoothly. Through the applying some Feng Shui principles our purpose is to make some changes in their environment to increase a better energy flow, bring in harmony, prosperity and abundance to this valuable organization. Some describe Feng Shui a Chinese Earth Science or Ancient Art developed to bring people into harmony with nature, time and space. The literal meaning of Feng Shui is “ wind water”.
