KIIDS in the Kitchen

In November, two of our KIIDS Families graciously hosted Cooking/Social Classes in their homes.

These NEW events aimed to promote life skills and socialization among the Tweens & Teens in our group.

The Tween Class, was a fun afternoon of making healthy fruit smoothies, and yummy dessert nachos.  And the Teen Class was a huge hit too, with making pasta salad with pesto, roasted peppers and feta cheese and no-bake chocolate, peanut butter oatmeal cookies.

A thank you message from our Fundraising Chair

A thank you message from our Fundraising Chair

Wow!  I have finally been able to catch my breath from our 2nd Fashion Show Fundraiser event.  Sunday, April 13, 2014 was truly an inspiring day. 

The models were all rockstars on the runway – from start to finish! Their personalities showed in each of their struts!  I loved hearing the stories too, of why they each chose the escort they did.  So much love and inspiration filled that room that day!

Thank you to all of the models, escorts, parents, extended families, friends, attendees, donors, sponsors and vendors who ALL helped to make the day such a success!
