STUDIO 55 FINE ARTS GUILD makes opening gift of hope for the Forever Home Capital Campaign! --Published in January.

Studio 55 continues their support of FosterAdopt Connect and Sammy's Window with a generous gift toward the Forever Home Capital Campaign.

"Studio 55 is very pleased to become a donor for the new community Forever Home Capital Campaign. We are thrilled to know our $2500 donation will be matched and becomes $5000 toward the purchase of the building. Not everyone is able to become a foster parent, but everyone can donate their time and or money to better serve the foster children and their foster parents in the Southwest Missouri area." --Sandra Letson, President Studio 55 Fine Arts Guild 2015/2016.
