The golf classic, presented by Northwestern Mutual Financial Network, The Texas Financial Group — Dallas, enjoyed another successful year, raising more than $240,000 in proceeds to help as- sistfamilieswhoendurethephys- ical, emotional and social hard- shipsofhavingaseriouslyillchild. The Children’s auction party kicked off June 17 as sponsors, golfers and guests gathered at the Frontiers of Flight Museum to support Children’s. Presented by Park Place Deal- erships, the evening featured a live and silent auction, a live band and interactive games. Items auc- tioned at the party included mag- nificent resort and golf vacations with airfare provided by Ameri- can Airlines, a once-in-a-lifetime ride in a jet fighter plane and a Harley-Davidson FXSTS Springer Softail Motorcycle. A new auction item in 2006 was to Send a Kid to Camp, which gave guests the opportunity to send a deserving patient to one of many Children’s-sponsored sum- mers camps for only $150 per ticket. The bike was a hit, raising more than $12,000, sending morethan80childrentosummer camp. Guests were also able to guess the number of balloons and golf balls in vehicles provided by Park Place Dealerships for the chance towintheuseofaParkPlacevehi- cle for a weekend. Children’s pa- tient and Frisco resident, Connor Cruse, kicked off the live auction by announcing these winners, and that set the stage for the rest of the evening, which was full of excitement and competitive bidding. Many familiar faces from Collin County attended Saturday evening’s auction party. Darryl Reaugh and Marty Turco of the Dallas Stars joined their wives, Kristin and Kelly, in the bidding wars, along with Rudy Andrea of Plano, and his family. Also in attendance were Chil- dren’s Foundation board trustee and former tournament co-chair- manRichardRogersofFriscoand his wife, Janice; Wanda and George Farr of Plano; and Jordan Case, president of Park Place Lexus. More than 320 golfers partici- pated in the Children’s Golf Clas- sic at Stonebriar Country Club in FriscoJune19.Thisyear,thetour- nament was again played with two rounds of golf on each course, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. With a wave of check- ered racing flags, Children’s pa- tients Katie Bieler and Connor kicked off the shotgun starts for the morning and afternoon groups, respectively. WFAA-TV Channel 8 weath- erman, Pete Delkus, was also on the course to play a couple of holes,forecasttheeveningweath- er and interview Christopher J. Durovich, Children’s president andCEO,andTaitCruse,fatherof Connor Cruse and managing partner of Northwestern Mutual Financial Network. Highlights of the tournament included several hole-in-one con- tests for luxury cars provided by Park Place Dealerships, the Par 3 Challenge, the closest-to-the-pin contest,shortestandlongestdrive competitions and a putting com- petition. Connor set up a lemon- ade stand for the golfers and On The Border Mexican Grill and Cantina generously donated breakfast and lunch for the play- ers on the course. Since the inaugural tourna- ment in 1988, more than $2 mil- lion has been raised to assist fam- ilies who endure the physical, emotional and social hardships of having a seriously ill child. The proceeds help provide fi- nancial assistance to families needing such things as medica- tion, in-home monitoring equip- ment and transportation to and from the hospital, necessities that many of these families would oth- erwise not be able to afford. A portion of the proceeds also benefit Children’s child life pro- grams and pediatric camps, whichallowpatientstheopportu- nitytoenjoyfun-filledcampexpe- riences,whicharesuchavitalpart of childhood.

That’s how Fun Summer Nights wasborn.” For six Wednesday evenings this summer, Water’s Edge has hostedfreeFamilyFunNightgath- erings that got all generations in- volved in challenges and events in- cluding water tosses and tricycle races. Water’s Edge kicked off the summer with a Family Scavenger Hunt June 7, and then continued eachWednesdaynightwithWacky Family Olympics, Wild Water Games, Cowboy Round Up, Fami- ly Movie Night and a Dessert Extravaganza. Attendance the first week began on the modest side, but as the word spread and people learnedabouttheevents,theFrisco community began to make Fun Summer Nights a part for their Wednesdayevening. “ThegoalofWater’sEdgeFam- ily Church is to provide a safe, en- gaging and genuinely upbeat envi- ronment where those without a church home can find a place to process the loving and truthful re- alitiesofJesusChrist,”Huechtman continued. Water’s Edge Family Church, with support of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod, was re- started in May 2004 by 15 local families and has grown by more than 80 new families in the last 24 months.

At 32,000 feet, the ground takes on a view you just can’t see at ground-level. I love looking at the farms and watching cars, which look like ants with head- lights, drive around on the tiny little roads below. That’s about when I decided to tell you a bit about our trip. During our trip to Utah to visit family and snuggle grand- babies, Kerry, Rachel and I drove over mountains, streams and through forests and got to see many of the wonders of nature. We also had the privilege of seeing our 5-year-old grand- daughter Kiara march in the Fourth of July parade with her dance class. She was the cutest one there, of course, with her blonde hair and bright blue eyes. All in all, we had a great time. And even though I had the most glorious time with my fam- ily during the holiday, I found myself thinking about the Frisco Freedom Fest and wishing I could be with you at that cele- bration, also. I’ve heard a lot of great comments about the event but haven’t received any photos. Send them if you have them. For several years, Frisco has been growing with leaps and bounds, and I’ve heard people ask if it is losing its small-town feel. I want to switch gears a little right here and relay an incident I witnessed Friday evening at Poppy’s Italian Restaurant at Frisco Square. Kerry and I were eating our pasta, and two couples came in within a few minutes of each and were seated at adjacent tables. Small talk between the two cou- ples ensued. I was only two tables away and picked up from the bits of the conversation that the two couples were strangers getting to know one another. I have no idea who the people are or what they discussed, but occasionally I could hear questions like “where do you work?” and “how long have you lived in Frisco?” This exchange between tables intrigued the journalist in me, and I began wondering if this was how people here in Frisco small town get acquainted. To my delight and the waiter’s confusion, one of the visiting couples picked up their salad plates, flatware, drinks and per- sonal belongings and moved to the other table to finish their meal with their newfound friends. I guess that answers the question people have had in the last few years about whether or not Frisco is losing its small town feel; the answer is a defi- nite no. I want to thank those two couples who chose to reach be- yond their personal space and strike up a friendship. Seeing you move together and share a table made my day. Until next week … Jodi Shumway is the editor of Frico Neighbors. Reach her at Big city with a small town feel JODI SHUMWAY Pets of the Week Name: Muggs Age: 8 months Sex: Male Name: Turco Age: Kitten Sex: Male The Frisco Humane Soci- ety is not exactly sure what breed Muggs is, but his face looks like a German shepherd and his body looks like a corgi. Muggs gets along well with the other dogs at his fos- ter home and loves to play. He has been with cats, too, and does OK. He is still a puppy, so he will need a family willing to work with him. He is a rough and tumble guy who will take a few minutes to get a belly rub, and then he is off to play again. Muggs is house trained, crate trained and good with kids and loves to go on walks. Turco is named after the Dallas Stars’ goal tender. He was rescued from a feral colony when he was quite young. Turco is deaf, but it does not stop him from being ac- tive. Turco is a loving kitten that likes to wrestle and play. He loves any type of toy en- joys being petted and held. You can meet many of our adoptable dogs and cats in person at Frisco PetsMart Saturday afternoons. I For more information, call Frisco Humane Society at 972-498-8980 or visit www.
  12. 12. July15,2006Neighbors•Frisco12 Neighbors ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT ByLIZFRIEND Frisco Community Theatre’s director Shannon Campbell had a big problem — you could even call itgiant. “It’s not often that a director getstoomuchtalentappearingfor the audition, but it certainly hap- pened this time,” said Campbell about the theater’s production of Jack and the Beanstalk. “There were so many kids with that little something extra that I just could- n’tchoose.” Campbell came up with an un- usual solution to her unexpected dilemma: she didn’t choose. In- stead, she double-cast many of the lead roles in the show, particularly those of main characters Jack and thePrincess. Among others, Thomas Friend and Cooper Partin will share the role of Jack, Taylor Preston and JazminPowerswillsplittheroleof the Princess, and the Giant’s Wife will be played by both Chelsea UptonandAmeliaLieb. Is this a recipe for double trou- ble? Campbell doesn’t think so. “Each of the kids has some- thing special to bring to the show, and they all bring out the best in each other. I think it will be one of the best children’s productions FCT has ever staged.” she said. The encore cast, with Friend, Powers and Lieb, will perform during Thursday matinees and Saturday evening shows; the Bravo cast, with Partin, Preston and Upton will perform Friday nights and the Sunday matinee. Show dates are now through Sun- day, July 16, and Thursday throughSunday,July20-23. Tickets are $10 and are avail- able online at www.Frisco Specific information about Jack and the Beanstalk can be found at http://childrenstheater. info/.

Doctors, nurses and other staff were on-site during the entire week to ensure the healthandsafetyofthecampers. Daily activities included horse- back riding, fishing, swimming, dancing, arts and crafts and cooking. “My favorite part was the darkroom,” said Kimbell, who chose to pursue photography as a special project during camp. For many campers, this is the only time they have to interact with others who have a neuro- muscular disease. For parents, this free camp is often the only way to afford their children a weeklong break. “If it weren’t for MDA, Kim- bell wouldn’t go to summer camp,” said Christine, who noted that this is Kimbell’s fourth year. “I know that here she’ll have a wonderful time with people who understand what she’s going through.” “We are very grateful to our staff, volunteers and donors who make this camp possible,” said Marie Collins, MDA regional di- rector. “Because of their efforts, we are able to provide these campers with a free week of fun, relaxation and friendship.” Campers returned to Dallas at noon last Friday. For many it was a sad parting, the end of a week where disability did not af- fect the ability to participate, where for once they were all equals. But luckily, there’s al- ways next year to look forward to. Camp John Marc in Meridi- an has hosted the MDA summer camp for more than 10 years. MDA is a voluntary health agency working to defeat more than40neuromusculardiseases through global research, com- prehensive client services and health education. In Texas, MDA offers four summer camps, more than 20 support groups and clinics, and more than $1 million in research grantstostatehospitalsanduni- versities, including the UT Southwestern Medical Center.
