There was a wonderful selection of costumes and smiling faces as we raised money + support for Beyond the Rainbow Fund. Below are some photos of the morning run!
If you weren’t able to make it, but want to learn more information – don’t hesitate to visit them on their website for more info!
The Beyond the Rainbow Fund provides local oncology patients in need with financial assistance and support while undergoing cancer treatment. Since its inception, this fund has provided patients with immediate prescription assistance; subsidized rent, utility and fuel bills;purchased groceries; and assisted with additional needs that may have become unmanageable for individuals or their families during treatment. This fund also provides patients with wellness/fitness programs and integrative therapies, such as massage, that further assists them in improving their quality of life as they focus on healing and recovery. The impact felt by the recipients of this fund is immeasurable.
Whether it’s over-done or out-of-style, this “dip-dying” painting technique still catches our eye. If it’s something you already have in your house and you’re looking for a fresh new appearance, simply pick up a new color and voila! you have a new piece of furniture without spending more than $15 (or less!) . . .
And dip-dying isn’t just for furniture — let these inspirations get your creative juices flowing!

2. MissMoss displays tons of ideas incuding these dipped, wooden, kitchen spoons.
