On Friday, February 9th, friends of A Children’s House for the Soul came together at The Health Museum to raise awareness and funds at the first annual “Helping Others Love The Skin They Are In” Happy Hour FUNdraiser. The event was expertly chaired by Kathy Krueger and the auction was organized by Susan Hamm; who are both members of the Board of Directors. Our guests were welcomed with a huge SOUL balloon sculpture from Ballooms of Houston, and they had the chance to have their photos taken on our famous orange carpet when they arrived. It was a great evening of delicious light bites from Phoenicia, our signature cocktail “You Gotta Have Soul”, libations donated by Karbach Brewery, tasty treats including cotton candy, snow-cones and popcorn, fun carnival games and mechanical bull rides with music by The Royal Dukes Band, as well as a silent and live auction with Dean McCurry Auction Services. The event was emceed by Bill Brown, the longtime voice of the Houston Astros, and Dr. Alanna Bree, Executive Director, was signing her new book, A Children’s House for the Soul: A Little Story About a God-Sized Dream, with proceeds benefiting the charity. The evening was a smashing success and raised nearly $30,000 to support A Children’s House for the Soul’s important mission of encouraging and uniting children affected by skin conditions and birthmarks by providing opportunities for social, emotional and spiritual support. Our hearts are truly overflowing with gratitude to all who provided their support, and we are sincerely grateful for our many donors, underwriters and supporters who made the night possible. Because of the generosity of many, we can continue to help the children we serve truly love the skin they are in!

Helping Others Love The Skin They Are In FUNDRAISER – 02/09/2018

A Children’s House for the Soul is excited for their first Happy Hour FUNdraiser to raise awareness and funds that will allow them to expand their mission of encouraging and uniting children and their families affected by skin conditions and birthmarks by providing opportunities for social, emotional and spiritual support.

Adults interested in improving the lives of children and teens affected by skin conditions and birthmarks are invited to attend this casual and festive event. Please join us for a fun night of tasty bites, delicious cocktails, wonderful music, exciting games, and a spectacular silent and live auction, along with the extraordinary opportunity to be photographed on our orange carpet and be introduced to some of the children and families who have been positively impacted by the important work of our organization. It is a night you do not want to miss!

A Children’s House for the Soul, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization making a difference in the lives of children and teens affected by skin conditions and birthmarks in our greater Houston community. There is no other organization that provides similar services; therefore, the organization fills a unique need for local children and teens. People don’t often realize how difficult it is to be a child or teen with a significant skin problem. It has been shown that these children have remarkable impairment in their quality of life, as well as suffering with increased bullying, social stigma, alienation, social withdrawal, and depression with decreased body image, self-esteem and confidence. A Children’s House for the Soul wants to help re-write the story for these children and their families, so they can see themselves as uniquely and wonderfully made. The organization is passionate and dedicated to their mission which is accomplished through connecting people together who truly understand to help enlighten, encourage and empower one another.

There are underwriting and sponsorship opportunities available. If you are interested, please reach out to info@achildrenshouse.org.
