The Toy Chest Kickoff Event


Over Mother's day weekend Kevin Rex and I participated in the Toy Chest kickoff event.
The Toy Chest is a children's charity that our good friend Ron founded and KR just so happens to be the vice president. The organization is still in its early grass roots, but it's mission is to serve children of all needs across Kentucky. Their goal is to put smiles on kiddos faces :-).

Kev has put sooo much hard work into this charity and this event and I was so proud of him. I have also got on board with this great cause as a volunteer. We have been planning the kickoff event for months so there was much anticipation leading up to it. We invited those closest to us for our 1st Toy Chest "Friends and Family" event.

Momma and baby bro came down to support Kev and I.




And of course we took Mama out to eat the next day to celebrate mother's day over some much needed Mexican food. Yum!

The event was held at the home and backyard of one of the board members.
We munched on delicious bbq and watched the kiddos enjoy all the fun activities.

Kev assisted with the design of their official logo and his friend Mike executed it perfectly.
They have been using the logo on cakes, tshirts, banners....you name it.
Isn't it cute?!?



I can't even begin to tell you how proud of him I am with all the work he has been doing. So stinkin proud!

My bestie, Meg, and her hubby came to show their support.
We love every second we get to spend with them.




Mr. president and the fabulous hostess




The Toy Chest Board.
That's my man on the left :-) :-) :-)


We raised a lot of money that night and informed a lot of people in the community about what we are doing and what we plan to do in the future.
I believe in serving your community and serving others and I am so happy KR and I have found this avenue.
It's truly been a blessing.
We have big things in store for a lot of Kentucky kids :-)
