One Inspired Evening

Kids With Courage "One Inspired Evening" Gala

On Friday November 2nd we attending for the 1st time the 3rd annual Kids With Courage "One Inspired Evening" Gala and all I can say is that it was inspiring.

When we first arrived at the gala we were greeted kindly by a door man who opened the door for us, made us feel like royalty. We proceeded to the registration table to check in and get our dinner seat assignments (we were at table 9). Checking In was such an easy task.

The night started off with lite hor dourves that were very tasty (I normally am not an hor dourves person) and a silent auction. As we toured the various tables abounding with items we were very impressed with the selection. There was a little bit of everything for everyone. We placed our bids on several items and ended up winning those items at the end of the night (Aly was very excited).

We were then moved into a very lovely decorated tent space for dinner and presentations. The speakers that they chose were VERY touching and I could not help myself but tear up during most of it. It hit VERY close to home as I feel the same way these other parents do. We also heard from a teenager who has Type 1 Diabetes and her message was very inspiring to both the parents and the other diabetic children in attendance.

The night ended with dancing, the band was great and while we did not participate in the dancing it was entertaining to watch.

We will be returning yearly and hope to see you all there supporting Kids With Courage and their Crates Full of Courage.
