A group of committed individuals along with a kind and generous family decided to create an afternoon of fun with one distinct purpose- to help victims of abuse within their community. Funds raised from this event would help the most vulnerable be able to turn the page in their lives or even start a new story of healing, love, and joy. Working together this merry group found the most magical of games to play as well as treasures from near and far to award as prizes.
In the summer of 2018, the invitation for "The Kathleen Jackson Boots & Bags Bingo" event was sent throughout the land...
Kathleen "Kathy" Jackson was known for her generosity, humor, kindness, and love for her friends and family. To know her was to love her.
Married for 35 years, Kathy was the mother to three children- Veronica, Daniel, and Douglas, and a proud grandmother to their children. Her heart for children went beyond her own family through her 17 years of work in the Eastland ISD cafeteria.
To say she was social would be an understatement. If there was a community event, you were sure to see her at her booth ready to sell hand crafted goods and homemade goodies. Other times she could be found playing bingo, bunco, or taking her grandchildren out for pizza and a movie. She was generous to all- ready to make a meal or give what she could to whomever needed it.
This event is in celebration and honor of her love for her community, her heart for children and families, and her infectious joy in spending time with friends over a good game night.
