Cherokee Day Open House and Food Drive
Sadly, our Cherokee Day event for 2020 had to be cancelled this year due to our desire to protect the health of our donors, staff and children. Based on the recommendations of the World Health Organization and Center for Disease Control, this was the only choice we could make. We hope that you will continue to pray for us, and we ask that you be sure to check with us next year for news about Cherokee Day, 2021! We appreciate your partnership in taking care of children!
Cherokee Day Open House and Food Drive is held the first Saturday of May each year. This is the big day for our collecting groceries and cash to help with food expenses for the following year, as well as our chance to have you on our campus and thank you for your generous support. We provide you, our special guests, with a delicious BBQ lunch, complete with all the fixings, around noon. You are welcome to come early before lunch or stay later after to tour our campus, buildings, and cottages.
Annual "Man Up! Day", men's fellowship day
Each year on the 3rd Saturday in September we have a special gathering for men, called "Man Up!". This event is designed to give husbands, fathers and their sons an opportunity to have fun, bond with other men, and get some spiritual feeding and encouragement. Last year's event featured Brad McCoy (father of Washington Redskins quarterback and former NCAA championship Univ. of Texas quarterback, Colt McCoy) as the speaker. He, and a panel of experienced fathers/husbands, led us in thoughts about what it means to "Take a Stand and Take the Lead" as Christian men in today's world. This year's event is scheduled for (September 19, 2020)
In addition to spiritual feeding, there will be other things to enjoy. A great BBQ lunch will be served and there will be a small silent auction of some quality "manly" items. Throughout the day there will be displays and demonstrations of "typically manly" skills and hobbies, such as knife forging, archery, Western jewelry making, handloading, firearms assembly and more. Some displays will include fun contests with prizes.
This is an RSVP event. PLEASE RSVP NO LATER THAN SEPTEMBER 11, by emailing email@example.com, or calling 325-622-4201.
Our annual Ladies Day is held in February. We begin around 10:00 a.m. with a lite fare breakfast followed by singing, a special speaker, games, lunch, and great fellowship. Each year we like to have our staff and girls in care involved so that you may get to know us better. Our day usually wraps up around 3:00 p.m. All are invited to participate. There is no cost for the day. It is our goal that you will see our work, meet our staff and girls, and choose to be a part of our work by becoming a prayer warrior and an ambassador for the family at CHC. RSVPs are appreciated so that we may be adequately prepared.
