Blessings for Braden

Welcome to our blog! Braden is a 2 year old little boy who has been diagnosed with Neuroblastoma. Nueroblastoma is a childhood cancer that is most often found in children under the age of 10. Our hope is that God will heal Braden completely and that his story will help others draw closer to Jesus.

The Benefit 5-19-12

Today was the Boozer BBQ Benefit.  These last 3-4 weeks have been a testimony of God's grace.  If Kimberly, Kim, Allison, or I talked or even thought about something we needed, God provided exactly what we needed.We started this thinking we'd feed about 200-300 people and have a nice little afternoon.  God had greater plans than us!!!  John from Heat Hog BBQ served about 540 plates of BBQ today.  We had an incredible turn out and it was so wonderful seeing everyone there today.  Together we raised $12,000.  I am still in awe of today.  Thank you for loving the Boozers the way you did.

I've got a few pictures from the day, not as much as I would of liked.  If you have some you'd like to share, please do.
Here's the Blessings for Braden Bracelet Booth.

Mr. Barry had the hayride going continuously all day!

 We had six jumpies going, with five usually working at a time:)
The silent auction was great!

More jumpies...  see the one on the end?  :)

Aubree (Braden's baby cousin) hung out in the shade.

The BBQ was d.e.l.i.c.i.o.u.s.

Our Bluegrass band:)

Kimberly did a fabulous job running the auction.

There was a whole lot of face painting going on.

The BBQ line.

Jamie, Jessica's sister led the bake sale, yummo!

Serving the 'cue.

The pageant girls led the parachute play.

The kids got to explore an ambulance,

and a firetruck.

Many more things went on, but I tuckered out and stopped taking pictures.  We did have everyone sign this.  I was brought to tears seeing all of those awesome signatures. 

From all of the Boozers, thank you all so very much.
Here's more pictures from the day taken from Jessica's Facebook page.

 Quinn is almost like a sister to Braden, and she considers him a brother.
