2015 BACH Barn Bash
My Dad, Harry Blevins, was one of BACH’s original fish fryers on the volunteer cooking crew for the annual fish fry/auction fundraisers back in the late 1970’s and 1980’s. He always looked forward to these events and found much joy doing his part to help the children who needed the special services offered by BACH. Dad was my inspiration to become a BACH volunteer. I have met countless other fantastic volunteers who, like me, want to contribute their time, talents and resources to an organization that truly makes a difference. Through the years, I have witnessed many children who have been BACH clients, and I have seen some amazing results! I can attest to the gratefulness of the families as they watch their children progress in becoming more independent.
I have been a member of the Barn Bash steering team for a number of years, and was truly honored when asked to chair this year’s event. I am excited to have David Thacker as my co-chair, and we are hoping you will join us for this memorable experience! Last year’s event set a record, and we are touched by the outpouring and generosity from each of you. We are once again asking for your help so that together we can assist BACH in fulfilling their mission of “Helping Children with Special Needs Achieve!” - Buck Blevins
Dear Friend, April 7, 2015
For 42 years, BACH (Brazoria County Association for Citizens with Handicaps) has been providing valuable services to children with special needs in our community. In FY2014, nearly 1,200 children (age birth to twelve-years-old) were served by BACH. Infants and toddlers receive a range of therapy services including family counseling and education, physical therapy, occupational therapy, nutrition services, speech-language pathology and others. In addition, hundreds of older children with disabilities benefit from special support activities. All services at BACH are provided, regardless of family’s ability to pay.
Each year, in order to provide these services, BACH must raise matching funds from the community in order to receive grant dollars. The BACH Barn Bash is one of the special events which support our efforts. You are one of the many individuals who have made a significant difference in BACH’s success, and we want to personally invite you to once again join in the festivities!
The 2015 BACH Barn Bash is scheduled for Saturday, June 6, 2015 at the Brazoria County Fairgrounds auditorium. The event will again feature Tom’s Fun Band, pony rides for children, clowns, hay rides, snow cones, clowns, and other free entertainment; catfish filets with all the trimmings; and silent and live auctions with hundreds of sensational items to choose from. Please see the enclosed flier for more detailed information.
How can you help? You can buy a dinner ticket, donate an auction item, be an active bidder at the event, or be an event sponsor (or any combination). Tickets are $15 each. If you choose to be a sponsor, in addition to your company name being displayed at the event, you will receive recognition in the auction program and on BACH’s website and Facebook page.
Sponsorship levels range from $100 to $10,000. Please see the enclosed response form for information on sponsorships and complimentary meal tickets in the amounts specified. Once completed, you can fill out and return the enclosed form (fax, email, US Postal Service, or phone call) specifying how you wish to be involved. A specially designed emblem and meal tickets will be delivered to you prior to event day.
If you have any questions, please feel free to phone one of us. Our thanks in advance for your commitment to helping a bunch of “special” children reach their full potential!
