I toured the Ronald McDonald House of Fort Worth in November 2015 and instantly fell in love with the House, its purpose, and its people. I don’t know what I expected when I stepped foot into the lobby, maybe a dorm or hospital feel, but that isn’t what I got. I felt like I was walking in to someone’s home. I was shown the community rooms, the courtyard, game rooms, and kitchen. I passed families taking up residence there, and while I can only imagine the heart-wrenching stress and worry filling their minds, they greeted me with smiles. I was in tears by the end of my tour and knew that RMHFW was about to become a part of my life in one way or another.
When I became a member of the Red Shoe Society, an organization for young professionals that benefits the RMHFW, I was informed that the house had a hard time keeping enough detergent on hand. In contemplating how to fill that need, the “Suds & Bubbles” idea was born. As an attorney at Anderson & Riddle, LLP, here in Fort Worth, I felt compelled to give back to the community that I live and work in. I had also recently launched my Rodan + Fields business, and thought what better combination than skin care and mimosas? But why stop there? I reached out to other members of the community and we’ve put together a great event for you. We would love for you to shop and mingle with us and if you are able, please bring a HE powdered laundry detergent, dryer sheets, dishwasher detergent or dishwashing liquid to benefit the House.
Come sip and shop with us Tuesday, March 22nd from 11:30-1pm at House Essential on Camp Bowie Boulevard.
For more than 10 years the name HOUSE ESSENTIAL was just an idea. Last Fall, that idea became reality with the opening of a small but power-packed interior design studio with home furnishings, accessories, and gifts all under one roof in a 100 year old building. Owner, Kim Milam, and her colleague Cynthia Walters both have Interior Design degrees from TCU and have more than 30 years of practice between them. Specializing in residential and light commercial projects, Kim & Cynthia want every project to reflect their clients desires as well as the expertise they bring through their vast experience.
