Family Ties

I have a connection with a really great non-profit organization {Mid-Coast Family Services} in my area.  My mom works there.  So, yeah, I'm biased.  But believe me, when you see all the good they do for South Texas, you, too, will be biased.  I've had the opportunity before to create an event poster for them and sang their praises once before.  And I'm going to again.  :)

I was given another opportunity to design an event poster for a new fundraiser, Family Fun Fest.  These fundraisers are crucial to Mid-Coast because, as I mentioned, they are a non-profit organization.  Not to impune your intelligence, but you do know what that means, right?  This amazing group of people do what they do NOT for the money.  They do it because they have a passion for it.  They help other people, people just like you and me, because they want to.  And right now, they are fighting for their jobs.  I don't want to get too into politics, but there are some seriously crazy things going on in the Texas Legislature that is putting groups like Mid-Coast on the edge...of tumbling over a cliff...and not being able to recover.  Ok, ok, I divert...

So, why is Mid-Coast so great?  Why do I love doing these pro-bono jobs for them?  Well, they are tackling homelessness, they have AWESOME programs for substance abuse, and they are currently in the process of building a fabulous new Women's Crisis Center (that can accomodate pets!  That is a rare occurance, by the way.).  All of these programs are out there to help our community, and they don't do it for the money!! 

Ok, now this poster I designed is for a "fun"draiser coming in May...May 14th to be exact.  It will be held at the Riverside Park Main Events Center in Victoria.  And it is exactly what the name says:  Family Fun Fest.  There will be stuff for everyone and it is benefiting a wonderful, wonderful group of people.  Just doin' what they do because they love it.  And doing it all for you, should you ever be in need of their help. 

So why not come out and give your kids (or yourself for those of us still kids at heart) a day of pure, clean fun that will benefit an organization actually making a difference.  For more information, you can visit their website at or give them a call at 361-575-7842.

Until next time...
