Kids from all over the community can meet their favorite caped crusaders, storybook princesses and sports mascots during this one-of-a-kind morning. The best part? While you’re watching your kids’ eyes light up, you’ll know that you’re also supporting the young patients at Texas Scottish Rite.
Character Breakfast was started three years ago by Crayon Club members Dorothy McGowan and Natalie Womble as a way for young professionals to raise money for the hospital while having the opportunity to interact with children in the community.
“We wanted a way to separate ourselves from other young professional groups who usually throw a ball or gala to raise funds. Character Breakfast allows club members and other young professionals to not only raise money, but volunteer while doing so.”
The morning begins with a scrumptious breakfast served by Crayon Club volunteers and friends. All attendees are welcomed and encouraged to dress up as a character, and the excitement builds as the kids receive a special autograph book to collect the characters’ signatures. Their jaws will drop when the character parade enters the room with all of their favorite friends, from Elsa and Cinderella to Batman and Spiderman.
As soon as breakfast is finished, it’s time for a photo and autograph extravaganza. The kids enjoy one-on-one meet-and-greets and photos with the characters. Face-painting stations, family photo booths and tons of other activities keep everyone entertained and smiling.
Parents can explore a fun-filled silent auction with a variety of items for kids and adults alike. Past silent auction packages have included tickets to local sports games, week-long sports and summer camps, family photography sessions, and a cake-decorating party. The silent auction is a great way to find a special birthday gift while supporting children’s care.
