While this was a smaller event than the Spring Flame A Thon....only 6 torches running....we had the awesome honor of having Marta and Deme HERE from Ethiopia. They even brought their son, Sam! We also had camera crews from Fox31 and Channel 9!
Shannon and Zach-Great Hosts!

After a little coaching from Leslie...and help lighting the torch, the lovely Marta made a couple of beads!
Betsy, the "Mother" of the HOPE Bracelet Project, got interviewed by Channel 9 and Fox31 Television!
She also presented Marta and Deme with a check for $25,000....the first half of the proceeds for 2003 bracelet sales! WOW!
The beads are OFF the mandrels
(thanks to Anji, Cindy & Roxanne) and
we ended up with
a whopping 281brand new HOPE beads!
