We haven’t posted in a while because we’ve both been on a much needed vacation! We worked back-to-back events last Thursday & Friday and now that we’re home, it’s so much fun to look back on the pics and be thankful for getting to be a part of these wonderful events.
Thursday might was Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Central Arkansas “Toast & Roast” of the title winning Arkansas Razorback basketball coach, Mr. Nolan Richardson! (Of course we were pretty excited that he got his picture made in our booth…)
And Hannah and all the people who put on the Roast were so much fun to work with!!!
But they could not do what they do without the charitable giving of all the folks in Arkansas who support the organization.
And these kids are part of BBBS’s “Big Role Model” program- who spend their junior year of high school volunteering and providing an example of excellence in the communities they serve. Props to this group- they are awesome kids!
Overall, the event was super fun & raised a lot of money for Big Brothers, Big Sisters, which is such an important cause. (We can not wait for their Wine, Women & Shoes benefit next month! Ladies, get your tickets now!!!)
Then Friday night was an equally fabulous event- The Taste of the Finest– benefiting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation! This was our first event at the Metroplex, and while I haven’t seen it empty- it was so. very. nice. The black and white decor, delicious food from all over the state, and always fun band, Tragikly White, made for the best time!
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a life-threatening disease that affects the lungs and digestive system. An estimated 30,000 children and adults in the United States have cystic fibrosis, and the CF Foundation is dedicated to finding a cure. This event did a great job at raising awareness of CF and the lives it touches every year. While CF is obviously no laughing matter, it’s nice to have fun pictures to celebrate the great Arkansans who donate their time & money in support of this cause.
Back-to-back nights of two of the most reputable charity events in Arkansas… We absolutely love getting to be a part of this & thank all of you for supporting such life-changing causes.
