Spring is here, and so are quite a few exciting events! Georgia’s Girl of the Year “gig” is in full swing, and on the horizon, we’ve got several things planned for the coming weeks.

This weekend, we’ll be attending the Texas Stars hockey game, where Georgia and Nikman will be the special guests for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society benefit night. Next week, we have a possible television interview about the Man and Woman of the Year campaign, and we’ll be wrapping up our last week of Pennies for Patients at Parkside – the kids can’t wait to see who’s going to get a pie in the face!

And now, for one of our big events, how about joining us for Uncle Trent and Aunt Kate’s Second Annual Blood Drive and Party in honor of Georgia! Sunday, May 1st, the blood bus will be parked at their house, and anyone willing and able is invited to come donate, come visit, or both. To donate, you need to make an appointment, so click on the blood drop guy in the sidebar for more details and to sign up. We’d love to see ALL of you there, but if you can’t make it, please consider donating at your local blood center. Thanks!

Finally, calling all young artist Friends of Georgia! Ivy’s classmate, Patty, and her parents have organized a children’s art show benefiting childhood cancer research, and we would love your artwork to be a part of the show! Patty is only seven, but she has a true passion for helping children with cancer, so she created this event in honor of Georgia – isn’t that amazing? The show is Sunday, May 22nd, so if any little artistes would like to send us a piece or two, email us for details. You could have your art in a real gallery for a real good cause!

Have a great week, y'all!


  1. WooHoo...I just signed up for my appointment to donate on May 1st. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone again and to sharing some San Angelo blood in my ol' hometown of Austin.

  2. Courtney, I continue to be amazed at the incredible job you have done on this very interesting and creative accounting of Georgia's progress. I loved her guitar solo, the slideshow, and I am especially happy that she has been admitted into the Ann Richard's School. She is certainly deserving, and I fully expect her to be a leader as an adult as she has proven to be through this past year. We love you all and continue to pray that she continues this path of healing. Love, Beverly
