Attendees of the Fort Worth Christian Women’s Connection luncheon will be treated to a feisty guest speaker, a good meal, and an opportunity to donate to a worthy cause.
During the organization’s February luncheon, women are invited to bring new teddy bears or other types of stuffed animals to the event for MISSION 3:16, a chaplaincy at Kimbo Juvenile Justice Center.
The luncheon will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Feb. 15 at the Mira Vista Country Club, 6600 Mira Vista Blvd in Fort Worth. The cost is $17.
The mission donates a stuffed animal – or Prayer Bear – to a patient at Cook Children’s Medical Center in Fort Worth every time one of the Kimbo kids earns a certificate for being on Level 1 behavior for seven consecutive days.
The stuffed animals must have the store tags still attached.
Since November 2002, Kimbo Juvenile Justice Center has donated “Prayer Bears” to Cook Children’s Medical Center on behalf of detainees maintaining the highest level of behavior.
The scheduled guest speaker for the February luncheon is Qujette Cone, a fun-loving grandmother, who will take attendees on a journey of her heart’s travels in “Music From the Heart.” Jimmie Porterfield will accompany Cone on her musical journey.
In addition, Ryan Loehndorf will showcase the variety of pampering at Moda’s Aveda Salon on Seventh Street.
Childcare is provided. All reservations, and cancellations, including childcare, must be made by Feb. 10. Email Patsy at email@example.com for reservations.
