Pinterest Road Show to benefit Sondra's Song

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

As many of you may remember, KCBD's own Sarah-Blake Morgan did a feature about how an orphanage in Haiti is making a difference in the lives of the country's children. Sandi Turner, a Lubbock resident, was so touched by the generosity she saw at the Haitian orphanage that she began a non-profit organization right here in Lubbock called Sondra's Song. The vision of Sondra's Song is to help area youth who are aging out of the foster care system with life skills.

Now, Turner has organized a creative way to raise money for Sondra's Song. She and her staff are bringing Pinterest On The Road to Lubbock this Saturday for one day only.

For those who don't know, Pinterest is a social networking site that allows people to collect ideas about the things they like and "pin" them online. This event will bring the Pinterest idea into a craft mall settling. Pinterest On The Road will feature the work of crafters, local business owners, quilters, furniture makers, antiquers and DIYers to buy, sell and swap ideas.

Cost will be $5.00 at the door and children under 12 are free. Pinterest On The Road will be held at The Legacy Event Center, 1500 14th Street, Lubbock, TX on March 16, 2013 from 10AM-6PM. All event proceeds will stay in the South Plains to benefit Sondra's Song, Soar 2 Succeed.

For additional information, contact Sandi Turner at 806-790-1962 or visit their website at www.pinterestontheroad.com.
