Chicks Dig Scars, Benefit for Hudson

What: Chicks Dig Scars, Benefit for Hudson

Club 1000 (the Penthouse)
1000 Broadway St.
KC MO 64105

When: Friday, November 11th 7:00 pm

My cousin Morgan is putting together a benefit for Hudson! The proceeds will go towards surgery and travel expenses, and a portion will also be donated The World Craniofacial Foundation (WCF). An outstanding organization that supports four distinct programs to help children and adults with craniofacial abnormalities.

The benefit is open to the public and will cost $30 a person at the door. This will include food and an open bar. We will also be holding a silent auction and raffle. This is for a great cause but will also promise to be a fun event. What a great reason to get gussied up and head down town.

Please let us know if you can attend, would like to make a donation, or have something you can provide for the silent auction. You can contact us directly  through the blog or at hudsonraven6@gmail.com

We have been so overwhelmed by the generosity of loved ones and strangers! Thank you so much! A BIG Thank You to Lindsey with Herlife Magazine who has been a huge help!

Some exciting businesses participating so far are:
Club 1000 http://www.club1000kc.com/
Stella & Dot http://www.stelladot.com/sites/aclifton
Pin Up Pastries http://www.kcpinuppastries.com/
Blanc Burger http://www.blancburgers.com/leawood.html

This is going to be such a fun event and I'm so excited for so many reasons!

1. Awareness is SO huge!

Ensure more children are seen by physicians when there is a concern with head shape or development
Ease the anxiety that comes from hearing the diagnosis for the first time
We want to encourage more much needed research that could come from more awareness
We can help society understand and love our beautiful little cranio kids.

2. It is a relief to be able to offset some of the medical and travel expenses

3. It will be so wonderful to be surrounded by friends, family and anyone who wants to come join us before surgery.

4. It feels so great to help other families through the WCF, some of which don't have insurance.

I look forward to seeing everyone there! This is going to be a wonderful event and means so much to our family.

Jeanette, Matt and Hudson
