Kaleb Kares, Inc. and Viviana’s Memory Boxes 2016 Annual Banquet was a semi-formal event. The room was decorated with elegant pink and blue décor, and each table named after an angel baby whose parents received a memory box from Viviana’s Memory Boxes. 250 guests started the night with a silent auction and then moved into a large event room for dinner. Keynote speaker, Marc Mero, told his powerful testimony on “Choices.” President and Founder of Kaleb Kares, Inc. and Viviana’s Memory Boxes, Carrie Acosta, reviewed the organization’s projects and financial needs for the next year. Mrs. Acosta also revealed the newly designed boxes for Viviana’s Memory Boxes.
Penny Pipkin shared her experience as a nurse that gets to see Viviana’s Memory Boxes’ impact on patients as she delivers them during the loss of a pregnancy or newborn baby. The event came to a closure with the organization’s board member, Barry Lewis, ending with a word of prayer for the organization and the families that will be on the receiving end of these projects.
