The "mane" attraction

Yesterday I mentioned my good friend Sara and her fundraising goal. To further inspire you, dear readers, here is one example of her creativity and caring. She worked with another artist friend to decorate this fiberglass lion, part of the Lions of the Valley project leading up to the arrival of a traveling Broadway production of The Lion King at our local Performing Arts Center. The lion's title? "Breast Cancer Survivors: Not an Endangered Species."

For more lion pictures, click on the lion. To sponsor Sara on the Avon Walk, go here and follow the steps. I promise, I fixed the link so it works correctly.

Did I mention that I know four of the women pictured on the lion? Eat your heart out, Jeff Probst -- these women are the real survivors.

I pulled Joy's comment at first because I wasn't sure the content was public knowledge. Now it has been formally announced: Breast cancer survivor Deanna Favre (wife of quarterback Brett Favre) has autographed this lion. Her picture is on the top, behind the mane.
