A reminder to our guests that we want you to enjoy the perks of receiving a discount at our luncheon. In order to do so, you can easily go to our website’s registration page to register and pay in advance for a $15 entry as opposed to $20 at the door. We do accept credit cards, checks and cash at the door for payment but we can’t invoice for walk-ins.
Our February Luncheon was a wonderful discussion by Karen Casey EMT-P, Director of Relationship Based Care at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Rockwall . She taught us about the importance of Self- Care first in order for that to trickle down to customer care and co-worker care. It was very well received and we all took some important lessons back to our businesses and personal lives!

Casino Night at The Pearl Recap
On February 22nd we had our Annual Casino Night Fundraiser. It was held at The Pearl at Sabine Creek with a "Roaring 20's" theme and our guests did not disappoint with getting into the action of dressing up! It was the first year we have sold out two weeks in advance with a waiting list. We were able to surpass our goal in fundraising and in addition were able to meet our goal to receive a matching grant from Modern Woodman specifically towards the restoration of the the historic Calaboose! We want to thank each our guests for spending your evening with us and we hope you had a splendid time! We are already planning next years event.


Once again we could not have pulled this event off without our incredible team of volunteers, our Emcee; Erin Kincaid with Higher Hopes Counseling, our Auctioneer; Mr. Gary Freedman and amazing Sponsors:
