No matter how old you are, there is something magical about meeting your favorite characters. It is why so many people flock to Comic-Con events, and it is why the Crayon Club Character Breakfast at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children is an annual smash. What is the event, and how did it get started?
A Magical Morning
Kids who attended the Crayon Club Character Breakfast on June 27 didn’t mind getting up early on a Saturday morning. The over-all excitement is contagious as children get to feast their eyes on their favorite characters. What’s even better is that the kids get to interact with the characters as the fictional icons serve up a delicious breakfast.
A Character Extravaganza
Whether they’re dying to hang out with Batman or simply must take a photo with Elsa, a child’s character dreams come true at our Crayon Club Character Breakfast. Everyone who attends the event is encouraged to dress up, and, after breakfast, those costumes are put to good use. Kids receive a special autograph book and pen, so they can float around the room and collect the signatures of their favorite heroes and princesses. In addition to the autograph party, there was also face-painting stations and other awesome activities.
Something for Parents
The Crayon Club Character Breakfast isn’t just for kids. The event included a silent auction for parents. They were able to bid on items like tickets to sporting events, family photography packages and other family-friendly prizes.
How It Started
The Crayon Club Character Breakfast started back in 2013 as the brainchild of Dorothy McGowan and Natalie Womble, members of Crayon Club. They wanted young professionals to be able to support the hospital in a way that could also open a door for them to get in touch with children in the community.
The Character Breakfast is unique in that it is really all about the children. It gives Crayon Club members a special opportunity to feel the personal satisfaction that comes from volunteering.
