Beads of Courage Special Event. You’re invited to a Beads of Courage flame event at Pacific Art Glass on May 13.

Supporting BOC is SCFS’s primary charitable activity, and our goal is to be the number one BOC contributor from California. You can help us meet our goal for 2017 by participating in this fun (and free) event on May 13. With the generous support of Pacific Art Glass, we will provide free torch time, 104 COE glass, lunch, and inspiration. You can come by and make courage beads in any style you like, as long as they are BOC-friendly. Also, this is a great opportunity to drop off any BOC beads you have already made; we will be holding a special raffle during this event and the number of tickets you get will be proportional to the number of courage beads you bring in (details below). The schedule is flexible, you can come for the entire event, or just am or pm. Please RSVP to let us know you’re coming so we can plan supplies and refreshments. Hope you can join us!

RSVP to admin@socalflamesurfers.org

What are Courage Beads? Act of Courage Beads are the artist-made glass beads that are given to acknowledge the milestones in a child’s treatment journey. We as artists can strive to make beads that stand out from the children’s Program beads. These “Courage Beads” can be sculptured, larger size, brightly colored or “themed” as examples. There will be examples of Courage Beads on display at the event.

June Meeting Reminder. Our next SCFS general meeting will be June 10 at CBS Coatings Inc. in Orange (9:30-12:30). Adam Teller will be doing a special demo and we will have lots of raffle and auction items for you to win. More details will be provided in the May SCFS News.
