A MidSummer's Night Out

LifeShare Assistive Technology hosted its annual "A MidSummer's Night Out" at the LifeShare House July 18-19. We invited children from around the state who use synthetic speech devices to speak for them. We staged an adaptation of Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" complete with period costumes. In addition, we met with each family individually to determine what we need to do to assist them further in their home and school setting. When we broke camp the next day, we had our marching orders. Our goal was to have our campers begin school with some new tools and momentum.

LifeShare would especially like to thank Smith Barney, of Jackson, for their support during this event. Having your strong community support and involvement truly means the world to LifeShare. We thank you on behalf of the LifeShare team as well as the children and families whose lives you touched.

2006 Chili Bowl

The Mississippi Delta Sigma Alpha Epsilon 6th Annual Chili Bowl Chili Cook-off, benefiting The LifeShare Foundation was held on March 25, 2006. Over 300 tickets were sold and this year’s Chili Bowl event raised $10,100 for the LifeShare Foundation. This money is being used in direct support of the ministries of the foundation. The founding family underwrites ALL administrative costs of the foundation, therefore every dollar raised goes towards meeting the needs in the life of a child.

This year’s chili bowl was a fun-filled outdoor event, in which there were 27 teams entering the contest. The winners of this year’s Chili Bowl Cook-off were: Judges’ Choice- Team Pike and People’s Choice- Kappa Delta. Congratulations to these two teams for making such excellent chili!
