The Used Furniture Store is hosting a fundraising event for the Uganda Orphans Fund. The UOF is a non-profit foundation dedicated to the rescue and care of Ugandan orphans and other vulnerable children. This fund was created by a Bozeman family who wanted to reach out to those in great need and has since built over 30 schools! We live in such a wonderful community, free of dangers these children face everyday. Uganda has more than 37 million people and Montana has less than one million. Many of these young abandoned children struggle to find a safe place to sleep at night. Other children are sold into rebel armies and brainwashed to assist in village massacres. Females are forced to serve as subjugate wives. This is a daily fight not only for basic needs but for childhood innocence, safety and education. The UOF provides shelter for these kids to live in the orphanage community with people who show each other love, affirmation, and provide the education needed to have promising future.
This event has a growing list of vendors including LaFoley Wood Fire Pizza, Luxe Cupcakes, Vino Per Tutti, Bridger Brewing and Lockhorn Cider House. It will be an evening gathering with a silent auction with items from Big Sky Mountain Resort, Earth Elements, The Loft Spa, Bridger Kitchens, Spruce and Honey, Sacajewea Hotel, Kara Tripp Studio, Seasonal Montana, Conrad Anker, Plonk, 2 Personal Chefs, Montana Mex, Cherlyn Wilcox Abstract Art, Shirt Works of Bozeman, Living Nutrition, Meridian, Pizza Campania, Damselfy, Lulu Pottery, Pure Barre, Schnees, Jenny Lowe-Anker, Ace Hardware, Origins Massage and more. There will also be a Sage Fly Rod and Handcrafted Kayak Paddle!
