Betting on a Cure!

I am so excited to say that my sisters and I, along with our mom, are working on a new fundraising event we’re calling “Betting on a Cure”, a casino night benefitting the CF Foundation!  We think this event will be a lot of fun, and I hope we have a great turn out. 

The casino night will be on Friday, April 9th at the new Marriott Courtyard in Allen off Stacy Road.  The party starts at 7:00pm, and will include the classic Las Vegas games of Poker, Black Jack and Craps!  Marriott has graciously agreed to donate the space to us, so we need to make sure we have as many people there as possible.  This will be open to the public so, save the date and bring all your friends!

Buy-ins to play the games is $40, and prizes will be awarded to the top chip holders.  Additionally, raffle tickets will be sold for $10 each for a chance to win more great items.  We are currently looking for sponsors and raffle items, so if you have any ideas, please let us know.  We are positive we will have some wonderful options to choose from!

So far, everything is working out perfectly, so I know Courtney is working her magic from above and pulling some strings for us.  If this event does as well as the Zaza auction, we will easily be dancing over the $15,000 goal line she set for us!  Please come out and help us make this happen!!




Cards to Court

A couple of weeks ago when Court was admitted into UTSW, I had posted on FB and asked friends and family to send Court some cards to cheer her up.  Thank you to those who did and fortunately she was able to see some before she was sedated.  We received a couple of cards yesterday that she hasn’t been able to see yet.  I wanted to share one we received…

Inside the card:

Hey Courtney,

Sorry to hear you’re feeling sickly,  hope you’re up and around real quickly.  Being sick is just no fun,  so take your meds and get’r done!    Leave that place in a cloud of dust and come back home with the rest of us!   Thinking aboutcha & sending a prayer your way!    Love, Steve and Vickie

Thank you everyone for sending your love!  If you want to mail Court a card, you can send it to her home address below and we will get them to her when she wakes up from her deep slumber. 

651 Leading Lane, Allen TX 75002

Please let us know…

If you could please post along with your comments where you are from city,state (or Country)…It will be nice to see where the thoughts and prayers are coming from.

All the best,

The Sisters
