We had such an incredible evening at Dodger Stadium on August 2nd raising support and funds for Kershaw's Challenge! We thought we'd bring a little bit of our Texas roots to California by hosting a BBQ & Hoedown. Our main goal was sharing our heart and passion for Zambia and kids with those who attended, but we also wanted to make sure we treated them to a "boot scootin" good time! Our VIP reception took place in centerfield with cocktails & appetizers, while guests mingled with Dodger players.
Once the hoedown began, we moved the party to a tented area in the centerfield parking lot. Guests walked the "blue carpet" as they entered a tent adorned with pictures from our trips to Zambia. We had fun for all ages- from line dancing, face painting and corn holing, to silent auction, raffle tickets, and incredible gourmet food. Kids painted artwork for the walls of Hope's Home as Steve Garvey revved the crowd up during an awesome live auction.
With Dodger Dogs, popcorn, candy bar, and ice cream helmets filling everyone's craving for good ballpark food, the night turned into a Texas "honky tonk" featuring our favorite country singer- Grammy nominee Pat Green! We two-stepped the night away to his incredible country tunes. Once the raffle tickets were drawn and silent auction winners announced, everyone made their way out the door with a goodies filled "swag bag" (including a Kershaw's Challenge t-shirt, Arise book, CK bobble head, Cy Young replica, and more!) We are so appreciative of the Dodgers ownership and Dodger teammates for showing their support and participating in such a fun evening with us.
Thank you all who bought tickets and came! We are excited to tell you that we raised all the funds needed to complete Hope's Home!
