Saturday, October 26, 2013

7:30 am – 12 pm

The final market of the outdoor season!  Bring your family (and pets, too!) in Halloween costume.  We will be giving away “Boo Bucks” to each child and/or pet.  A Boo Buck can buy items like honey straws, puppy or kitty treats, small pumpkins and gourds and so much more!

We hope to see you there!

 

Trivia Night

Thank you to all of our attendees for coming to our Trivia at Twilight event on Saturday night!  We all had a lot of fun and even raised some money for ABC. Congratulations to our winning team, “Pi R Screwed”, for a remarkable performance.  About 110 people were able to attend. The event was so successful that we will most likely do it again next year.

Trauma and Child Development

This article is a good article from the ChildTrauma Academy and discusses the impact on traumatic experiences on child development and how that then impacts the neurobiology development.  Check it out with the link below.

Trivia at Twilight

It’s not too late to test your knowledge! We still have seats and teams available for our Trivia at Twilight event Saturday, October 19th.

Support ABC With Wine From A. Renee

AReneeWhether you are coming to our event on March 15 or not this year, (click here for ticket and meal choice info) you may help us out by calling or visiting A. Renee and purchasing a preselected bottle of wine for our mystery wine table!  The way this will work at the event is that for $20, a bottle may be chosen which is hidden in a brown bag. The purchaser may be getting a $10 bottle, a $30 bottle, all the way up to a $90 bottle of wine!

When you order from A. Renee, (open Tuesday – Saturday) they will take your name, unless you’d like to remain anonymous. A. Renee is supporting ABC by taking 10% off the purchase price of the prices listed below. So not only are you helping abused children, you are supporting a wonderful local business in our community.
