You may remember her from this post and this one.
The out pouring of love and support for Ari at this event was humbling, touching, and just plain amazing. Look at all these people!
|And this was early in the day.|
There was barbecue, bands,
and a live and silent auction.
It was fantastic.
By far the very best most heart warming part of all of this was seeing Arianne there.

Hands down the best part of the day. I mentioned in my previous post that this aneurysm struck during a time when Ari was without health insurance. This benefit was set up to help her with some of her growing medical bills. If you are a friend who missed the benefit or a fantastic stranger who wishes to help a wonderful woman; you can still make a donation through the link on the Healing Hands for Arianne blog.
I hope you had a wonderful weekend as well.
