How Did We Get Involved in Sacred Selections?

In early 2008, a group of Christians in Bartlett, TN were discussing the importance of adoption and that a major hurdle for many young couples is the cost involved to complete an adoption. One friend had recently attended the Florida College lectures and had become reacquainted with Dana Carozza and her work with Sacred Selections.

After contacting the Carozzas and learning more about the foundation, how it is operated and the great work they are accomplishing, it was clear that Sacred Selections provides a unique opportunity for Christians to get involved in promoting and supporting adoption as an alternative to abortion while helping young couples with the expense of adoption. After calling upon family and friends for ideas and support, a plan was developed to bring this great opportunity to more people.

The first fund raising weekend for Sacred Selections was held in June of that year. The fun began on Friday night with a barbecue dinner, homemade desserts, and an auction of donated items from generous local businesses and fabulous friends. Early the next morning middle school and high school students served a pancake breakfast at Applebee’s restaurant. That afternoon a golf tournament was held at beautiful Quail Ridge Golf Course. When everything was tallied the friends from the Bartlett area had raised $17,000 – enough money to help TWO Christian families reach their dreams and adopt TWO babies.

Join us June 5th & 6th, 2009 for the 2nd Annual Bartlett Benefit for Sacred Selections. Working and having fun together we can make more dreams come true for more babies and their adoptive families.
