On Tuesday, June 14, 2011 Phyllis Kamps and Sherry Bumgardner hosted their 1st Annual "Babes 4 Bags" Women's Luncheon at Smokey's Lake Wohlford Cafe. In attendance were, Barbara Knox, Krista Brown, Donna Marie Cruickshank, Trish Womack, Melody Hawthorne, Mary Burdick, Mary Allison, Carolyn Bose, Ronnie Root and daughter Josie.

Ms. Root is the Program Director for St. Clare's Homes in Escondido. She came and explained how Sister Clare started the organization of St. Clare's Homes and the purpose of assisting women with career choices, education, and a home for themselves and their children. St. Claires's helps women in abused situations get new lives and to better themselves and to remove themselves from the abusive life.

Phyllis and Sherry are planning on doing this on an annual basis in June 2012.
There were many donations this year but Phyllis' hope is to have more donations every year.

Donations of women's clothes, children clothes and all necessary items are appreciated. Many times when a woman leaves an abusive situation, it is not planned and they have to leave their homes with only the clothes on their backs.
