Featured Advocate: Brenda Minnis
Brenda has been a volunteer with Aurora since 2011 and served as the event chair for Aurora’s Midwest Gingerbread House Competition in 2011, 2012, and 2013. Brenda selflessly gave an incredible amount of time to ensure this fundraiser was a success. Even outside of the event, she is always thinking of Aurora by helping with supply drives, promoting to the community and attending other functions. Brenda has a special place in her heart for those less fortunate, and Aurora has been so lucky to have her assistance.

All of this took place at Nail Expo on North Green River Road to raise money for Aurora, a Tri-State not-for-profit organization that provides services and support to the local homeless population. Most of the guys had never had a pedicure before and said they would “suffer through the pampering” for this great cause! Nearly $700 was raised by this sacrifice and hard work!
