Enchantment Under the Stairs - Enchanted Luau!

There are just under 2 weeks until the 2nd Annual Enchantment Under the Stairs - Enchanted Luau! If you were thinking of asking your hairdresser, dog groomer or favorite cupcake shop for a donation - no time like the present!  Please get things to Erica and Lori by February 18th.  You can reach us at  - we'd love to hear from you. 

Interested in volunteering?  Marie is helping to ensure we have enough hands on deck for things like bartending, taking money at the door, helping to set up and whisk everything away. If you are willing to give an hour, please let her know by emailing her at

For updates and pictures of what we have, please follow us on the Facebook. After you log in, search for 2nd Annual Enchantment Under the Stairs - Enchanted Luau and click 'join'.

The community has been so incredibly generous so far, you won't believe your eyes. Below is a sampling of some of the amazing supporters but we can still use more. We need the ever popular sports tickets (come on all you employees of big companies with season's tickets) and more cultural events like plays, the opera and other concerts.
