Rafael Cruz is a powerful example of the American Dream. Born in Cuba, Rafael lived and suffered under a cruel, oppressive dictator. He began fighting Batista’s regime as a teenager and was imprisoned and tortured simply because he wanted to be free. Rafael arrived in Texas in 1957 with nothing but the clothes on his back and one hundred dollars sewn into his underwear. He got a job as a dishwasher, making 50 cents an hour, and worked his way through the University of Texas, while learning English. Rafael Cruz became active in conservative politics as a grassroots activist during the 1980 Presidential Campaign of Ronald Reagan. His son, Ted Cruz, is the newly elected U.S. Senator from Texas

We had asked folks to bring pies to auction for the fundraiser and boy howdy did we get a bumper crop. Thank you to all who brought the pies and designer cupcakes by Linda Liardon and to those generous folks who bought them and then shared them with the nearly 90 guests.
