We're proud to have Michele Sparks, AHA Chair
and owner of the McAllen boutique as a part of our Pickles team!
"The American Heart Association will host a 2008 Tailgate Gala to benefit the children of McAllen at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, April 5, at McAllen Country Club.
"The purpose of this event is to raise funds to further our mission to help people live healthier lives free from cardiovascular disease and stroke," said Rebecca Taylor AHA Director.
This evening will feature two very special familes that both have children who have survived multiple heart surgeries. They will share their stores with Gala guests and provide a better understanding on the effects of heart disease and what can be done to increase awareness.
The money that is raised will stay in the community and be used to help educate people on their risk and help save the lives of those who are honored that evening." - The Monitor, Feb. 10 2008
