"East Side Heart and Home in East St. Louis (my ministry), has been nominated as one of 10 finalists in the Markham Vineyards Mark of Distinction program! This Napa Valley winery has a history of giving back, and through the “Mark of Distinction,” aims to help others give back, too. It will provide two finalists each with a $25,000 grant to allow them to continue their community efforts. Being selected would give us enough money to build another house for a low-income family in 2012.
The two recipients will be determined by the public. So please help us by casting your vote on www.MarkhamMarkofDistinction.com. Starting 12:01 a.m. (ET) on 9/1/11, you can vote as often as once per day up until 12:01 a.m. (ET) on 10/3/11. Feel free to spread the word and encourage your friends and family to vote for us! Thank you!"
