Local Events & Activities Spring 2007
Carrie's Heart was busy throughout the spring hosting inclusive community events for the Carrie's Heart kids locally. We also worked hard & had fun raising funds for our local & Yucatan projects. If you haven't had the opportunity to join in on the fun - as a volunteer or participant - check out the website for our upcoming events!
January 2007 - Carrie's Heart celebrated our One Year Anniversary with friends, food & fun at Taco Cabana! Donations of supplies for the sponsored Carrie's Heart kids in Mexico were collected in exchange for raffle tickets! Thank you to all our local businesses who continue to help Carrie's Heart through donations of great prizes!
February 2007- We all enjoyed getting together for our first annual Ice Cream Social in celebration of Valentine's Day. Thank you to Piccomolo's for allowing us to host our social in their comfy corner in the Mason Rd. store!
March 2007- Carrie's Heart participated in the spring Cougar County Garage Sale to raise travel funds for our spring mission trips to the Yucatan! A huge thanks to all of our volunteers and to those who donated their "junk" for this good cause!
April 2007-Our first annual Bowling Bash was a huge success! Carrie's Heart along with the Cinco Ranch High School Best Buddies hosted a bowling tournament at Time Square in Katy. Carrie's Heart kids and their family & friends formed bowling teams and bowled their hearts out! Proceeds from the event benefited our local Project Potential which provides sponsorship for children with disabilities & financial need to participate in summer enrichment activities. A fun day of bowling for a great cause! A HUGE thank you to our individual and business sponsors for this event:
