Author Darden North, MD, and Ponder House Press were priviledged to participate in the fundraiser for the Mississippi Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse held Saturday, January 12, 2008, at the Beau Rivage Resort in Biloxi, MS. Copies of North's novels POINTS OF ORIGIN in hardcover and HOUSE CALL in paperback were donated in appreciation to the sponsors and promoters of the well-received event. Fashion designer Deborah Kennedy and Camille Tate brought producers and stars from the long-running and popular The Bold and the Beautiful television series to Biloxi for "A Fashion Extravaganza" that auctioned many of the clothes and jewelry worn by the late Darlene Conley who played Sally Spectra on the show. Deborah Kennedy's designs were also featured in the fundraiser.
