You Did It!
COS’s 5th Annual Upcycle Boutique last Sunday raised $5000 in much-needed funding that we can now share with our neighbors in need!
We had a terrifically fun afternoon shopping and snacking, and are extremely grateful to our guests, to the many community members and retailers who donated fabulous finds, and of course to our wonderful sponsors, without whom this event would not have been possible.
A huge thank you to Weirs Buick GMC for once again hosting us in their spacious showroom, and for helping out in myriad other ways both leading up to the event and during the afternoon. (We commandeered their conference room for a week and they even sent out staff to pick up donations!) They really went above and beyond for us.
Kohl’s not only sponsored our event but sent over volunteers to help us set up on Sunday! Their merchandising skills were a great asset in showcasing the amazing designer clothing, bags and jewelry for our shoppers.
Texas Grace Kitchen kept our guests well-fueled and happy with their superb food and beverages, which they graciously donated. (If they left you hungry for more of their fun fare, check out some photos and get in touch with David at texasgracekitchen.com.)
We are also very grateful to our friends at Farm + Table, Jenn Stonehouse at Franklin American Mortgage, Terrapin Landscapes, and Hazelwood Handyman for helping us to help our community. Funds raised through our sponsors’ support will feed, clothe and warm both the homes and hearts of our neighbors in the coming year.
And, last but not least, our crew of dedicated volunteers were instrumental in making the Upcycle Boutique such a huge success. We love being part of this kind and generous community!
