Color of Hope

It is no secret that I absolutely love Arkansas Childrens Hospital. I take any opportunity to support and give back to ACH. On Friday, my parents, some friends and Dennis and I drove up to Fayetteville for the Color of Hope Gala. It is amazing to me how much people from all over the state support this amazing place. They were talking about how they were so grateful that ACH was only a 50 minute Angel One (ACH helicopter) ride away.There were over 1200 people at the event and it was projected to raise over 1.2 million dollars! AMAZING!
When we entered the event there was a red carpet with "paparazzi" flashing their cameras at us. Here is our red carpet moment.....

Every year the color of hope is a different color. This year it was red. Sadly, I did not have a red dress, but check out my cute red shoes!! and I had some red jewlry on.

This was some of our group from Little Rock.
A highlight of the night was meeting Herschel Walker. My husband thought I was crazy because I didnt really know who he was =) Apparently he is a very famous football player that won the heisman trophy and played for the Dallas cowboys.

Dennis is very excited that we now have Herschel Walker's autograph!
He is the nicest man and loves ACH! He donated four Super Bowl tickets in the live auction and threw in breakfast and dinner with him while in Dallas for the game.

It truely was an amazing night! Two live auction items sold for over $30,000!!

It just makes me so happy to know that so many people support ACH since Parker will be forever going there. They are one of the leaders in pediatric research and are 10 minutes from my house!
I hope everyone has a great week!!
