Last Thursday we had the pleasure of hosting a benefit dinner for someone close to us. One of our neighbors in Spice Village tragically lost everything in the West explosion, but we couldn’t be more thankful for her health and safety. In her honor, we decided to have a spaghetti dinner and donate the proceeds to her so she can begin rebuilding her life. We were overwhelmed with the out-pouring of love from the community and the donations we received. By the end of the night, in just four short hours, we had raised $300 to donate to her. We would like to thank everyone who came to our benefit dinner, but an extra special thank you goes out to the Waco Police Department for donating a banner for us to display in our cafe to show our support!
Speaking of showing support, we do love our Baylor Tennis teams. They’ve continued to impress us throughout the season and we’ve enjoyed the relationships we’ve developed with coaches and players. In honor of the teams, we’ll be hosting another Tennis Tuesday tomorrow! If you go to the Selection Show tomorrow afternoon, we’ll be there supporting the teams and handing out $5 off dinner coupons! One lucky tennis fan will even be entered to win a free dinner at the Olive Branch! Go show your support for the teams tomorrow at 4 p.m. in the Stone Room of the Ferrell Center! Sic em Bears!
