It's the Holidays!!!

With Thanksgiving next week, we are so very thankful for all of the supporters, volunteers and donors who have helped Heroes for Children GROW over the past 5 years. In five years, Heroes for Children has provided over $2.5 million in program services for families with children battling cancer in Texas. It takes a village to make it happen... from volunteers who help us raise the funds to volunteers who help us provide the programs... we appreciate everyone involved with our organization. If you are looking for a way to get involved with Heroes for Children, please contact Michelle Peacock at And look for a new blog post soon about all the different ways to be involved.

Heroes for Children is fortunate to benefit from 3 fundraising events happening over the next couple of weeks in the DFW area. We hope to see you at one of them!

1) For those of you ready to do your holiday shopping, we invite you to visit the Chi-Omega Christmas Market Nov 19-21. Heroes for Children is a beneficiary of this year's event, and we are so excited to showcase our organization. Stop by the HFC tree, browse 160 merchants and get your holiday shopping done early! For tickets, contact Jenny Scott at

2) Anyone in Southlake? Fish City Grill's First Tuesday event at their Southlake location will benefit Heroes for Children on Tuesday, December 1st! HFC will receive 15% of the day's sales. Please stop by! We will have some tshirt giveaways and we would love your support!

3) WillowBend Mall has a great off-price store called SH*OP (SHopping Off Price) which has name-brand clothing up to 70% off. They are hosting an in-store "couples night" on Thursday, December 3.
