5th Annual "Little Patch of Heaven Radio Show"

Little Patch of Heaven Radio Show

Fri, March 7th at 7:30 p.m. and Sat, March 8th at 3:30 p.m.
at College Church in Wheaton

Sit back, relax, and enjoy an evening of “old-time radio” in a live “broadcast” starring the talented Todd Busteed and the Musical Moms. The audience of more than 1,400 people gave last year’s production rave reviews. Learn how the Mom’s formed as a group and offer your suggestion to rename the trio! Fun family entertainment with dessert provided after the show. You will be given an opportunity to make a contribution to the work of STARS Family Services. We plan to open our first home for women in 2014. For more information about the show, call us at 630-206-0243.

With your continued generosity, we plan to begin construction of a home for women in 2013. The funds raised at our annual "Little Patch of Heaven" Fundraiser and other SFS events will help the annual operating costs of these homes. Please watch our short video about this project and consider making a contribution.

At this time of Thanksgiving, we gather together to celebrate the blessings God has bestowed on our families and the world.

The men at Washington House and those at Stars Family Services would like to share this verse with you as we give thanks to our...
