Karaoke & Cocktails raises funds for pediatric cancer
THE WOODLANDS, TX – The 2nd Annual Karaoke & Cocktails for a Cause was held on Wednesday, November 29th at Dosey Doe Big Barn in The Woodlands and raised funds for pediatric cancer.
Hosted by Jenny and Eric Uresti of the Uresti Giving Foundation, proceeds from the event benefited the Cancer Center at Texas Children’s Hospital The Woodlands. The event included a night of karaoke, cocktails, and fun to provide financial assistance for organizations that that support children with cancer and their families.
Watch what happened live at the event:
The Uresti’s youngest daughter Taylor, was diagnosed with Pre-B cell leukemia at 4 ½ years old on August 2010. In December of 2012, two and a half years after diagnosis, Taylor’s cancer was in remission, and she continues to live a happy and healthy life today. The Urestis then decided to create a unique event in The Woodlands while bringing awareness to pediatric cancer and raising funds for an important cause.
Eric Uresti, Executive Director of the Uresti Giving Foundation, shared an update after the event stating, “Friends, together we raised twice as much as our initial fundraising goal, and even surpassed last years totals. Attendance was a record high, and you helped exceed expectations on every metric. Such great memories! Such great fun! Such a great cause! Thank you every one of you!”
