The event Friday night was a lot of fun, and a great opportunity to learn more about the funding needed for childrens cancer research. My friend Kolbi took a few pictures (see the gallery below), and I had the opportunity to talk with Grainne Owen, the founder of Curing Kids Cancer, and Ashley and Craig Kimbrel about the cause.
Kimmie said he learned about Curing Kids Cancer when Grainne approached him at an awards event; he was touched by her son's story and decided to connect himself to the cause. He's done a lot of good work for them that you can read about on their website, but of course he did not mention that he has been donating $100 per save and $25 per strikeout to Curing Kids Cancer. Impressive.

His wife Ashley (whose countenance glows in the most lovely way), contributed in her own way on Friday evening. Aside from being a perfect hostess, she took care of four beautiful cancer survivors, overseeing makeovers and gifts. The girls looked so happy; they'll never forget this event.

We also got to meet and enjoy an intimate concert by Cole Swindell. He's very talented and I can't wait to see how his career progresses.

If you have the means, please consider donating to this very worthy cause. You can read more about it on their website, CuringKidsCancer.org.
Thanks again to Stephen Brown, Grainne Owen, and Craig and Ashley Kimbrel for a wonderful evening. ❤ And thanks to my friend Kolbi for all the pictures!
