We have the best friends and the best neighbors. Every year Towne Lake will host an event to spotlight/raise money for a charity. They graciously allowed this years dinner to spotlight Dec My Room.
Christa, Jessica, Alyssa, and myself organized the event. We had so many generous companies that donated prizes for our raffle. We had massages, dinner gift cards, photo sessions, cupcakes, food, and much more donated. We had well over $1500 worth of donations. Kroger donated all of the food and Cowgirl Cupcakes donated the beautiful desserts.
While the guests started on the first course, Jessica, Christa, and I talked about the charity.
We had 10 high school students from Cy Ranch that came to volunteer to collect money, serve food, and wash dishes!
We had people buy tables and decorate them. The table with the best decorations won a prize.
Overall the event was fabulous! One of our neighbors who couldn’t attend donated $900! That will dec out 3 rooms! With that donation and the generosity of the folks at the dinner, we raised $2400!!!!!! That will dec 8 rooms!!!!!!
God is Good! People are generous and wonderful! Just think, if you host a party and invite 30 people and everyone donates $10.00, that is one room that can be transformed to help make a child’s long hospital stay more bearable.
