A wine a id Food Paring event is p.lanned in July to 00nefit a unlque program in Uganda A Wine & Food Pairing event is being planned for Saturday, July 10, from 6:30 - 9 p.m. at the Veter- ans Memorial Building to benefit a unique program in Uganda that was born out of tragedy here at home. About 15 years ago, when Clo- verdale Farmers Market Manager Loretta Baker and her husband, Cloverdale School Resource officer, Mac Baker, were building their home just west of Cloverdale, their builder introduced them to an inte- rior designer from Ukiah by the name of Shelly Grivette. She and the Bakers connected instantly and soon became great friends. During a family gathering in 2001, Shelly's 3-year old son, Chris- topher, was killed when a chest of drawers toppled over on him. It's believed he was standing on the bottom drawer when the accident happened. Totally devastated, Shelly closed her business, sold her belongings, and set out on a quest to find mean- ing for her life. Despite a breast cancer diagnosis and another death in her family, she felt her healing could only truly begin by reaching out to others. Her family and friends, including the Bakers, of- fered their support as her search continued, ultimately taking her to Uganda. It was here she founded Christo- pher House Development Center where she has built a new life for herself helping other people's chil- dren. Families in Uganda have been decimated by decades of war, dis- ease and poverty, leaving the younger generations with no role models to guide them in choosing a lifestyle or a marriage partner, much less a career. Uganda has a population of 28 million people, half of whom are under the age of 15. Approximately 80% of the population is under 35. HIV/AIDS is rampant and the country has one of the highest rates of single motherhood in the world. Polygamy, alcoholism and aban- donment contribute to the tearing apart of their culture. The average wage for a laborer is only $60 a month. Once the decision was made, Shelly never thought twice about ers, including Patti & Friends. Admission is only $10 and can be paid at the door. There will be a silent auction featuring a variety of different items, including premium local wines, restaurant gift certifi- cates, local B&B accommodations, and a framed painting by artist Dee Andreini. Shelly will also be bring- ing authentic African jewelry, wo- ven baskets and other items for the silent auction. All proceeds will benefit Christopher House Devel- opment Center. Edward Jones MAKING SENSE OF INVESTING Shelly Grivette with children in Uganda. leaving her comfortable, middle class lifestyle in America to live in a 15-by-25 foot thatched-roof cottage on 10 acres in the bushland of East Africa. In Christopher's name, she is making a tremendous difference in the lives of countless children. "We are partnering with many local schools and we offer 1300 chil- dren from the ages of 5 to 18 a safe nurturing environment to explore their talents and gifts in programs of Art, Music, Drama, Reading and Sports," she says. "Even more important," she con- tinued, "we are building children from the inside out. By encourage- ment, example and teaching, we are helping them to learn self-respect, honesty, responsibility and service. We're also working with the par- ents of our kidst teaching life skills and English in an Adult Program." In 2004, thanks to the generosity of donors back home, Shelly was able to purchase 10 acres in the bush about an hour away from the Development Center. So far, they have built a kitchen, bathrooms and three cottages with the goal to have both permanent and guest housing available. They have also planted 700 eucalyptus trees for harvest and have 1.5 acres planted in food for the Center's consumption. Both of these things will soon help them to be at least partially self-sustaining. As Loretta says, there is an ongo- ing need for financial help. Loretta and Mac are hosting the Wine & Food Pairing while Shelly is home for a visit, not only to help out fi- nancially, but to introduce the com- munity to their friend and the incredible things she has been able to accomplish. "We are so proud of her and excited to be able to share her story with as many people as possible." Participating wineries include Asti Cellar No. 8, Dutcher Cross- ing, Pedroncelli, Pendelton, and Ra- mazzotti.
