I am beyond thrilled to the be the honorary chairperson for this year's Frisco Women's League Mother-Daughter tea! Anyone who knows me knows I'm a candy fiend - and when I found out this year's event was Candy Land-themed, I got even more excited!
2012 will be the 7th year for the FWL Mother & Daughter Tea, a popular luncheon for mothers and daughters, which sells out annually. Since 2006, the event has raised over $94,260 for area beneficiaries, including Cityhouse, CASA of Collin County, the Boys and Girls Club of Collin County, Collin County Children’s Advocacy Center and Heroes for Children.
The Tea takes place around Mother’s Day, making it the perfect way for ladies of all ages to reconnect with their favorite family and friends, while supporting worthy North Texas charities. The event features a tea-menu luncheon, a style show with latest fashions modeled for women and children, a silent auction, and crafts and activities for moms and daughters.
For more information, check out www.fwltea.org - there are plenty of sponsorship opportunities available, and the event always sells out, so get your tickets soon!
This year's beneficiary is none other than Hope Park of Frisco! Hope Park is dedicated to forever changing the landscape of Frisco, and I'm thrilled that it will be doing so right in my neighborhood. My homeowners association dedicated space in our subdivision to build an all-inclusive park to suit all children at any age, with a focused consideration for children with special needs. This 13,000 square foot play adventure will bring children together and help them build self-confidence, make friends and play as equals. Imagine a place where a child with special needs can play side by side with their brother, sister or peer. This parks design will be interactive invoking a sensory play experience that engages children at many developmental levels.
“All of our parks are ADA friendly, but this is more specialized,” Frisco Mayor Maher Maso said. “It’s a great concept. It’s one I support.” Maso said he liked that the park would be for all children, not just those with special needs. “This is just one more partnership that, frankly, I think, fits a need of the community,” he said.
