Breanna’s Gift art teacher, Margo McCreary had the kids making sculptures with corn starch packing peanuts. All of our artists were very creative. They made super heroes and dogs with capes and birds with wings. Our artist of the day created an elephant. This amazing elephant doesn’t Eat peanuts, he’s made of them! This was a project for all ages; where everyone was full of fun and creativity was in the air.
Breanna’s Gift held a 5K Running for Smiles event on October 7, 2017. And the winners are……………EVERYONE!
It was a cloudy, drizzly day, but that didn’t stop us from having fun. We would like to say thank you to our event patrons, Werner Electric, Rick and Tamra Anderson and Go Kart Labs; to Marge Meyer Associates for all of our marketing materials; to our event volunteers; to Kim Bergman for T-Shirt design; to Heidilynn Johnson for T-Shirt layout and to all of the run participants.
Congratulations to the winner of the race, Number 6, Billy Gese.
Number 21, Finnegan, was the winner in the canine division. Truth be told, we didn’t actually have a canine division, but Finnegan stole the show, coming in first and last.
Cudos to Billy and Finnegan.
And Thank You EVERYONE for your support!
