Cards for Kids is an event we had done in our past volunteer efforts with Committee for the Future of East Tennessee Children’s Hospital. As we’ve been anxious to have another event on our calendar that can help us meet our fundraising goals, this event has been in the back of our minds. Finally we were able to put it together for this year with a huge assist from Spaces in the City and we are pleased to announce that we were able to donate $5,000 for The Dream Connection. Thanks to everyone who supported this event!
Following a very successful inaugural 2018 Knox Derby Day, we were able to present 3 checks to very deserving local establishments that are making a difference in children’s lives.
The first check was presented to Shangri-La Therapeutic Academy of Riding (STAR) for $5,400. Then we presented a check to Knoxville Inner City Kids Outreach (KICKO) for $1,150. Finally, the last check was presented to East Tennessee Children’s Hospital’s Department of Pain and Palliative Care for $5,150. This means our inaugural event was able to raise a grand total of $11,700 to directly impact children’s based causes in East Tennessee. Thank you for everyone who participated in making this event a great success!
