Charis (the h is silent) is a local not-for-profit organization that provides health care for residents in our county who are working but don't have health insurance. A friend's husband is the director of that agency, and had been promoting a fund-raiser that took place yesterday. "Cannonballs for Charis" invited individuals to make a big splash off the diving board of our local pool. With the support of sponsors (like a walk-a-thon) each entrant made a literal splash in the pool, and a splash of support for Charis. There were two parts of the competition (with two age categories). The first was judged for the biggest splash (including form). The second was for presentation (see photo, below, and click on it to enlarge to appreciate the details!). Emceed by a local DJ and good friend, there were lots of laughs, cheering on and whistles of encouragement for the daring jumpers. It was great fun.
Have a great and beautiful Pentecost Sunday!
