ChrisTal Ball for Chris Kids

Saturday night, Smita invited me to the annual ChrisTal Ball, a fundraiser for the non profit  Chris Kids.  I sat at the Delta table with a couple people I knew and met a few new people.  It was a great event put on by Tony Conway, owner of A Legendary Event.    I had heard of the organization before, but really knew nothing about it. 

From their website:  
"Our mission is to heal children, strengthen families, and build community. Our core values are CreativityHonorRespect,Integrity and Safety: CHRIS."

They offer so many services to  youth and families.  There were different success stories posted on each table. Stories of how Chris Kids have turned around kids lives that were heading in the wrong direction and of kids who had already past that point. 
A man named Thomas spoke at the dinner last night and his story of how Chris Kids played a part in his life was so touching it brought me to tears.   This organization has made such a difference in so many lives.  I walked away wanting to learn more.  If you are interested check link above.  Its a worthy cause. 


  1. CHRIS Kids is an awesome organization.
