Heels For Hope and Hoops for Hope

Posted by Jessica Singletary on February 4, 2009

This year we are planning two of our fundraisers for 2010 to raise funds for the families that The Parker Reese Foundation supports and to raise awareness for congenital diaphragmatic hernia. 

We are very excited about what these events will do for CDH awareness and we cannot wait to share them with each of you. 

The first event we are holding is for the ladies, “Heels for Hope” which is a shoe decorating and designing contest.  It will start February 21, 2010 and end March 21, 2010.  Winners will be announced on March 27, 2010 and the prizes are amazing!  This event is going to be something that even those of you who live far away can participate in!  We are working through the final details of this event and once it’s all done we’ll post more. Until then get your shoes, beads, glue and creative brains thinking! 

Our second event will take place in April and is for the guys.  It’s called Hoops for Hope and is a 3-on-3 basketball tournament which some great prizes and special guests.  It’s a day event and open to any team who wants to enter whether you are local or in another state.   There will be good food, entertainment and tons of fun!  This event is still in the planning stages and once we are done we’ll post more on this event as well.

We will be hosting two other events and we’ll disclose those late summer. 

If any of you have questions or comments please feel free to email us at and we’ll respond as soon as possible.  It is our mission to bring more awareness to this birth defect and doing it with flair it just how we roll….. 🙂

Prayers For Davis

Posted by Jessica Singletary on February 3, 2009

Davis has been here for four amazing days and he is needing our prayers!   I know that people all over the country are praying for him but I’m asking you to take just 60 seconds to lift this family up in prayer right now!  Whether you are at work, home or in the grocery store…. Stop and say a prayer. 

We are in awe of this little boy and his parents. 

Mike and Carolyn, if you are reading this know that we love you both so much and we are here if you need anything.  You both are amazing parents and Davis is beyond blessed to have you each.  It was such an honor to meet your families the other day and please know that y’all are always in our thougths and prayers.
